Identities of pair found dead in Tillsonburg released
An investigation is underway after two Tillsonburg residents were found dead at a home on Brock Street East.
The Oxford County OPP was called to the home around noon Wednesday, after a family member reportedly found two people with no vital signs.
The deceased have been identified as 85-year-old Jacqueline Vermeersch and 83-year-old Roger Vermeersch.
OPP Const. Michelle Murphy says "There are officers that are doing the investigation and, you know, it takes time."
Neighbours say the elderly couple were retired tobacco farmers, who were kind but kept to themselves.
Jon Bueckert lives nearby, he says "I just saw them reading the newspaper out front like it was a normal day and I come home to this and it's not good."
A vehicle spotted in the driveway belongs to the couple's daughter, according to neighbours.
Post-mortem examinations are being conducted, but police believe the case is an isolated incident and there is no concern for public safety.
