SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego Police are investigating after a couple was found dead in a Torrey Highlands home Saturday night.

According to police, the couple was expected in San Francisco earlier in the day, but they never showed up.

When police arrived at the home on the 7400 block of Via Rivera in Torrey Highlands just before 10 p.m., they saw the body of a person through a window of the home. After entering the house, officers found an Asian man and woman in their 50s dead with trauma to their upper bodies.

10News spoke to neighbors who were stunned to see all the police activity in their quiet neighborhood.

"Everybody seems to mind their own business, I haven't heard of any problems whatsoever," neighbor Salam Hasenin said. "I hope we go back to our peaceful environment and I just feel really sad and bad for the people."

Nick Palermino shares a back wall with the victims' home. He did not recall any commotion happening Saturday night.

"We have a dog that has a doggie door, and she wasn't barking last night at all," Palermino said. "I hope it is isolated to this one incident. I hope it is not burglary that went bad."

According to police, the victims’ home does not appear to be disturbed.

Detectives are investigating the deaths. At this time, the identity of the victims has not been released.

Anyone with information is asked to call San Diego Police at 619-531-2293.
