Sheriff: 2 elderly couples killed in NC home invasion

An eastern North Carolina town is on edge after a gruesome discovery.

A North Carolina sheriff says four elderly people have been found dead after an apparent home invasion.

Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp told local media on Monday that a family member found the bodies after checking on the home in the Glenview community, just off Interstate 95 north of Rocky Mount.

The sheriff says the home was invaded sometime between Sunday and Monday morning, and some items are missing, but there were no signs of a struggle. He said two of the victims lived in the home, while the other two victims were visiting.
