Clinton Township police are investigating the deaths of a man and woman found Friday in their home on Uthers Street.

According to police, the bodies of the married couple in their early 50s were found around 1:30 p.m. by a relative who could not reach them by phone.

The causes of death have not been determined, Capt. Richard Maierle said Friday afternoon.

“There was some sort of trauma that caused the deaths,” he said. “There was blood found at the scene.”

Maierle declined to say where the bodies were found in the home.

The names of the couple have not been released.

Maierle said a family member had last spoken with the couple late Thursday night. He grew concerned and went to check on them Friday after being unable to reach them, he said.

“The family talks to each other all the time,” Maierle said.
