Garvin County Sheriff's deputies discover two bodies inside a home near Airline Road and Klondike.

Sheriffs deputies responded to a check welfare call Wednesday afternoon and found a man and woman dead inside. There was trauma to one of the bodies.

Deputies have secured the house and are working to obtain a warrant so they can search the home.

The sheriff is calling this suspicious but deputies are not actively looking for any suspects.

"I understand there was trauma to at least one of the victims," said Sheriff Mike Rhodes.

The sheriff won't comment on the identity of the victims, how they were related, or how long the bodies have been there.

But News 9 has learned the man worked at Mazzios pizza and was supposed to be back at work Wednesday after two days off.

"Last time I saw him was Sunday night," said Donny Pendley, the Manager at Mazzios.

The sheriff is calling the deaths suspicious, but says they aren't looking for any suspects.

"As far as any concern to the neighborhood here there is no reason for anyone to be concerned and we are not actively looking for anyone in this area," said Sheriff Rhodes.
