TRENT WOODS, CRAVEN COUNTY -

Police and the SBI are investigating the death of two people in Trent Woods.

The scene is at a home on the 3800 block of Canterbury Road.

Family members notified Trent Woods Police because they had not heard from the victims, said District Attorney Scott Thomas. When police arrived at the home Thursday, they found the two people dead.

The identities of the two victims and their causes of death have not been released.

Neighbor Betsy Gjertsen said the deceased victims were a couple, and she believed they were in their  late 70s to 80s.

"I was shocked but not surprised because the last time I spoke with him about his wife, he told me he was very concerned about her," said Gjertsen.

Thomas said he does not believe the public is in any danger. Police and the State Bureau of Investigation were at the scene.
