LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) - The Leon County Sheriff’s Office says a couple was found dead inside their home on Dayflower Circle Thursday night. Foul play is not suspected, LCSO said in a press release Friday morning, and the bodies of the man and woman were in “an advanced stage of decomposition.”

Deputies were called to the home in the 5700 block of Dayflower Circle after family members found the couple dead inside, LCSO spokeswoman Angela Green said. “The preliminary investigation determined family members had not heard from the couple for a while.”

According to the Tallahassee Online Police Statistics Map, officers received word of the deceased persons at about 7:45 p.m. Thursday. The residence is off a dirt road in a residential area just north of the St. Marks River Preserve State Park.

Deputies blocked off the area with yellow police tape, and multiple LCSO vehicles and a forensics unit were seen working the scene, as of 11 p.m. Investigators could also be seen working inside the home. Neighbors told WCTV an older married couple live at the residence.

LCSO says the couple was believed to be in their 70′s and has not released their names.

“There is no criminal investigation and there is no threat to the public,” Green said.
