Officers investigate double homicide in Renton

RENTON — Authorities are investigating the deaths of an elderly couple in Renton as a double homicide.

King County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West said officers located the bodies of an 82-year-old man and his 80-year-old wife around 6 p.m. Saturday inside their home after a woman reported she found her parents dead. Their names were not released.

Police described the deaths as homicides but did not provide other details.
