The couple found dead inside their home near Inez Tuesday were very friendly, down-to-earth people, a neighbor said.
Mark Schroller, who lives about four houses down from the couple's home, identified them as Bobby Brown and Wallace Brown.
"They used to walk their dog everyday," Schroller said. "Most people in the neighborhood would talk to them."
Deputies responded about 9:55 a.m. to the 100 block of Post Oak Bend, about five miles south of Inez, where the couple was found dead by a family member who was checking on them.
Neighbors would refer to Wallace Brown as "Wally," and noticed he put up the American flag everyday in his front yard, Schroller said.
He said they spent most of the time talking about the Korean War, where Brown was prisoner of war for about two and half years.
Brown wrote a book titled "The Endless Hours" where he talked about when he was shot down on his first mission in a B-29, captured in North Korea and secretly shipped over the nearby border, finally winding up deep in China, according to Kirkus Reviews, a book review magazine.
"They were really good people," Schroller said. "Some of the nicest people you'd want to meet."
The Victoria County Sheriff's Office declined to release information on the couple and the cause of deaths Wednesday.
