CHURCHVILLE, Pa. — A young couple was found murdered in their Bucks County home Tuesday morning, Northampton Township police say. CBS Philadelphia reports that the victims are in their late 20s to early 30s. Police have not released the victims’ identities.

Their bodies were found on the second floor of the home. Clark says they believe the couple was married.

Clark says there was a rifle found inside the home and casings, but cannot say if the gun was used in the double homicide.  There was no forced entry inside the home.
