MYSTERY surrounds the deaths of a man and woman in their 60s after they are found shot to death in their home.
Police officers in hazmat suits were seen searching the property in an investigation that detectives say could take a while.
Greenville police were called to the South Carolina home of Ansel Leigh Bouchillon, 66, and Alice Lollis Bouchillon, 65, Thursday morning.
They found the couple dead, each with multiple gunshot wounds, starting a murder investigation.
It’s unclear how long the bodies lay there before they were discovered.
The police arrived at the house around 9 a.m. Around 10:45 a.m., aerial footage showed investigators wearing hazmat suits entering and exiting the residence.
“I expect this will be an extremely lengthy investigation given the presence of fingerprints, DNA, photos and forensic evidence inside, maybe outside the residence,” Greenville County chief deputy coroner Mike Ellis told reporters.
“It will be an extensive investigation of all agencies involved.”
The couple’s neighbor, Bob Rawley, told local ABC affiliate WSPA that he had no idea what happened.
He said he didn’t hear any gunshots or learn of the dead that morning until the local police chief came to his door and asked if he had CCTV footage.
Rawley described the couple as wonderful neighbors.
“I could go on telling what he did for me,” he said.
“We had a very, very good relationship”
Officials have not named any suspects in the couple’s deaths.
There is a golf course across the street from the house.
Rawley said golfers are usually out by 8am and someone may have heard something.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Greenville.
