The Bell County Sheriff's Department is investigating after two people were found dead inside a home in rural Bell County.

Around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, September 15, deputies responded to the 8500 block of Campbell Hill Road after being summoned by family members on the scene who could not make contact with the residents of the home.

Deputies looked through unshaded windows and saw a person lying on the ground and unresponsive. Authorities forced their way into the home where two people were found dead.

Bell County Criminal Investigations Division and crime scene technicians were sent to the scene, along with Justice of the Peace Cliff Coleman.

J.P. Coleman has ordered an autopsy to be performed by medical examiners with the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas, Texas.

At this time, authorities are not releasing the identities of the deceased. No other information will be made available.

The investigation is ongoing.
