A married couple was found dead Monday in their Livingston County home of 23 years by authorities who were responding to a fire at the location.
The fire did not appear to be the cause of death of the couple, Hamburg Township Police Chief Steve Luciano told the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell.
Police suspect foul play based on wounds found on the victims' bodies as well as preliminary indications about where and how the fire started, Luciano said.
Fire and police officials have identified the victims as John and Nancy Lowenbergh.
Neighbors said John Lowenbergh was a psychiatrist and that Nancy worked for the University of Michigan. They had lived in the home since 1984.
Two dogs in the home were rescued by neighbors.
