Two people were found dead in their home Saturday.

“You think you know your neighbors,” said neighbor Sandy Latuska. “You see them all the time. You wouldn’t expect that to ever happen.”

Law enforcement officials stormed the quiet residential street around 2149 Cedar St. after receving a call around 1 p.m. Friday.

Brittany Fisher was feeding her 7-month-old son when events started to unfold.

“I saw a couple fire trucks, couple cop cars and an ambulance come in, and then probably five or 10 minutes later we had a couple more police cars come in,” Fisher said.

Ken Latuska and his wife Sandy watched from their front yard.

“We saw them come out separately in body bags,” Ken Latuska said.

The victims, a couple in their late 50s, had lived in the townhouse for three years.

“He’d come by middle of the afternoon and go down, walk and get his mail and say, ‘Hi, how are you?’” Ken Latuska said.

The two victims have been taken to the state medical examiner's office in Ankeny. Police hope their autopsies will reveal more about what happened.

The investigation is open. No names have been released.
