A married couple was found dead Tuesday morning inside their home, near Inez.
Deputies responded about 9:55 a.m. to the 100 block of Post Oak Bend, about five miles south of Inez, where "elderly family members" were found dead, said Victoria County Sheriff T. Michael O'Connor.
A family member who checked on the couple regularly was making a welfare check and found the couple deceased inside their home, O'Connor said.
Justice of the Peace John Miller held an inquest and ordered autopsies be performed.
O'Connor could not confirm if foul play was involved.
He also would not release the names or ages of the couple.
The deaths remain under investigation.
