NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) -- Autopsies on a New Albany couple found dead in their home Sunday afternoon are expected to be completed Tuesday.

The results may give New Albany police a lead in the investigation behind the deaths of Caroll, 78, and Patricia Mason, 77.

The autopsy on Caroll was completed Monday, but the medical examiner is waiting to release those results until the autopsy on Patricia is also completed.

Her autopsy is currently underway.

As police wait, the investigation surrounding their deaths continues.

Police Chief Chris Robertson says officers went to the couple's home Sunday at 3 p.m. after a neighbor reported not seeing the couple for a few days.

At the home, police say the door was open and the two were found dead in separate rooms.

However, Robertson says there was nothing to indicate the couple was robbed or shot.

He says investigators have also found no sign of forced entry into the home.

The chief says they are looking into all possible leads in the investigation.
