MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma -

Police responded to a call just before 9:45 a.m. Thursday after a family member discovered a man and woman dead inside their mobile home at the Village Oaks mobile home park in Midwest City.

As word spread of the deaths, neighbors were shocked.

"They were really friendly people so it's absolutely just a shock," said Jana Hathaway, who lived next door to the couple. "This is a really quiet neighborhood we live in. We don't have any problems so it's pretty upsetting to find out that your neighbors have been killed."

Midwest City Police Assistant Chief Sid Porter said it was a family member who notified police about the bodies and added they were not looking for any suspects. He said there was no history of violence or calls to the address and neighbors recalled the same.

"My kids play with their little girls. Their son mows our lawn for us," said Hathaway. "They always seemed to get along well. Never heard any fighting, arguing, anything like that."

Hathaway added when she left for work Thursday morning, she noticed both of the cars were in her neighbors' driveway, which is unusual since they both normally leave for work before she does.

The managers at the mobile home park were also shocked. They said the couple never caused any problems. They said the community has been very safe for years with very little crime. Neighbors agreed and said they never saw anything like this coming.

Midwest City Police would not release the identities of the two people found dead.
