— Two bodies were found inside a Robeson County home on Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Sheriff Kenneth Sealey said a nurse went into 133 Rozier Church Road near Lumberton at about 10:30 a.m. to check on a patient and found Archie Jones Jr., 63, and Linda K. Andrews, 55, dead inside. The bodies were found in different rooms of the house, he said.

No one had heard from the couple since Monday, Sealey said. No one else lived at the home.

The bodies have been sent to a medical examiner for autopsies to determine the cause of death. Homicide detectives are investigating and foul play has not been ruled out.

There were no signs of forced entry at the home, Sealey said.
