The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating the deaths of two people inside of a Covington-area home Friday night.

Just before 11:00 pm, deputies were called to a residence in the St. Tammany Hills area of Covington, after receiving a 911 call indicating that two people were injured and possibly deceased inside of the home.

Deputies arrived on the scene and found the bodies of a black female and a black male, both in their mid-40s, located inside of a bedroom in the residence. The identities of the deceased have not yet been released.

The Coroner's Office was notified and took possession of the bodies.

Initial processing of evidence shows signs of foul play and initial indications of a potential murder/suicide. The Coroner's Office will determine the exact cause of death and more information will be given as it becomes available.
