ELSMERE, Ky. — The couple found dead in a Northern Kentucky home last week were confirmed to be the victims of a double homicide, the Kenton County prosecutor said Tuesday.

Kenton County Commonwealth’s Attorney Rob Sanders said autopsies confirmed law enforcement officials’ initial suspicions that Carolyn Ann Tomlinson and Charles Douglas Eapmon were the victims of a double homicide incident when police discovered their bodies in a residence on Merravay Drive April 6.

Sanders did not identify a cause of death for either Tomlinson or Eapmon.

Investigators were inside the house for hours that afternoon.

Sanders did not announce any information regarding a possible suspect or suspects.

Neighbors told WCPO at the time of the incident that the two were a couple with four children.
