POST FALLS, Idaho - A boyfriend and girlfriend are found dead in their home with gunshot wounds to the head. It happened on the 500 block of E. 11th in Post Falls.

Post Falls Police are awaiting the autopsy results to determine the identity of the bodies which were removed from the house Thursday night.

Investigators tell KHQ that the landlord of the house showed up Thursday afternoon to evict the two residents. When the landlord showed up, she discovered the two bodies, one of which was blocking the door.

There was a gun found at the scene and police have confirmed that both had gunshot wounds to their heads. The woman was found blocking the front door with a cell phone still in her hands. The man was just a few feet away with the gun between them on the floor.

Police said it appears both have been deceased for quite some time. Neighbors say the last time they saw the couple alive was a week to 10 days ago.

Police have responded to domestic violence calls at the home in the past, once in 2008 and the most recent in March of 2010. Neighbors say the couple has lived in the house for several years.

The investigation is ongoing.
