Couple found slain inside Gates home

GATES — Authorities say they’re investigating the slayings of a husband and wife whose bodies were found inside a suburban Rochester home by the woman’s 10-year-old son.

Police in the town of Gates tell Rochester media outlets that a double homicide investigation was begun Wednesday after the boy came home from school and found the bodies inside the home the family had recently moved into.

Officials say the man and woman suffered trauma to their bodies but police aren’t saying how the couple died. Police say the victims may have been targeted.

The names of the victims haven’t been released.

Their bodies were found in a home the couple had recently renovated in suburban Gates, just west of Rochester.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is investigating along with Gates police.
