    [LA] Neighbors Found Dead in Simi Valley
    Investigators look for clues after two neighbors are found dead in the front yard of a Simi Valley home. Patrick Healy reports from Simi Valley for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013. (Published Tuesday, Dec 3, 2013)

    Officials said the pair had "no domestic relationship" and that they were neighbors.

    One handgun was recovered from the scene, but police said they would not discuss whether both victims had gunshot wounds until autopsies were performed.

    Police said the deaths appeared to be an isolated incident and they were not searching for an attacker.

    Simi Valley police said they have "no reason to believe any suspects are outstanding," and finding the motive is the biggest part of their investigation.

    The two victims lived in adjacent homes at the end of the block, police said. Officials would not confirm whether the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide.

    The cause of the "suspicious" deaths are under investigation.
