— Police on Thursday identified a man who was found dead in a Durham house early Monday.

Officers found the bodies of Martin Martinez, 42, and Toni Fowler, 46, inside their 111 Lynn Road home after a concerned relative asked police to check on the home. The relative told police that cars were parked outside the house, but no one answered the door.

No cause of death has been released, but investigators labeled the deaths homicides. Police said the slayings were not random.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Durham Police Department at 919-560-4440, extension 29322, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.
