MEDFORD (AP) — The Latest on authorities finding a woman and man dead inside a Medford home (all times local):

5:16 p.m.

Authorities have identified the two people found dead inside a Medford home Tuesday.

Medford police Lt. Justin Ivens says officers responded to the home to check on 50-year-old Charmaine Crunk Tuesday after she didn't arrive at work.

Ivens says officers had to force their way into the home to gain entry and then found the body of Crunk and the body of 51-year-old Eric Hilsenberg.

Ivens says both appeared to have died from gunshot wounds.

Detectives believe Hilsenberg killed Crunk and then himself.

Detectives believe Crunk and Hilsenberg both lived at the residence and that they had been involved in a 12-year relationship that had ended in March.

The official cause and manner of the deaths will be released after autopsies are completed.


3:38 p.m.

Authorities found two bodies inside a home in Medford.

Medford police Lt. Justin Ivens says the bodies are those of a man and a woman, and their identities are not being released until relatives are notified. He declined to say how they died.

Police were conducting a welfare check at the home Tuesday when they looked through a window and saw one person down. Once inside, they found the second body.

Neighbors identified the pair as an unmarried couple who lived in the home for several years and had guns.

Rebecca Golden and Mike White told the Mail Tribune newspaper that their now-deceased neighbors appeared to have mental health issues. They said the man tended to fabricate things, and often brought paperwork to their house in an attempt to prove the woman's supposed infidelity and threats.
