The bodies of the couple, aged 74 and 77, were found in the house where they lived by their son in the early hours of Sunday, with police sources indicating to Lusa that it appears to be a case of murder followed by suicide although “all hypotheses are open”, according to the same source.

“The experts were carrying out investigations on site and made a first assessment, but the investigation is at a very embryonic stage and we are still awaiting the autopsy report”.

The couple's son notified the PSP, and the case was later transferred to the Judiciary Police, responsible for investigating serious crimes.
