DUNDEE (WWJ) – Police are investigating after a couple in their 20s was found dead inside their home in Dundee.
Police were called around 1 a.m. Wednesday to a home on Riley Street, near the center of town at Tecumseh and Main streets. Inside the home, they found the bodies of a 28-year-old man and 20-year-old woman lying on the living room floor.
At this point, police haven’t yet indicated how the pair might have died. Dundee Village Manager David Uhl said there were no signs of foul play — at all.
“Right now it’s remaining a mystery,” Uhl told WWJ’s Dave Ramos. “There’s no sign of forced entry. No other signs, no evidence like pills or needles, any drug paraphernalia. And definitely no sign of a struggle. We don’t believe there was any violence involved whatsoever.”
No weapons were found inside the home, but investigators looking for possible clues did find approximately one pound of marijuana that had been “cut up” in the kitchen area. At this point though, it’s not clear if the drugs had anything to do with the deaths.
“I’m guessing that they probably were for distribution,” said Uhl. “Some of it was in baggies and some of it was already in glass jars.”
Uhl said police have been called to the home several times in the past on “civil issues,” but nothing was ever criminal.
Investigators believe this is an isolated incident and there’s no threat to the public.
“We just want to make sure that everybody is at ease in the village. There’s no cause for alarm,” said Uhl. “We are just waiting for toxicology reports to come back from the Wayne County Medical Examiner.”
Michigan State Police are assisting with the investigation, which is ongoing.
Names have not yet been released. Reports indicate the victims are husband and wife.
