Brooksville, Florida -- Hernando County Sheriff's Office detectives say it appears the deaths of two people found early Sunday morning in a forest was the result of a domestic-related murder-suicide.

An investigation into the disappearance of Michael and Glenda Jones, both 66, out of Dunedin led Hernando Sheriff's deputies to the heavily wooded area of the Chassahowitzka Forest where they found their bodies laying outside their vehicle.

The couple had been reported missing during the early morning hours of May 19.

Pinellas Sheriff's deputies say they were called to the couple's Dunedin home in the 1800 block of Dinnerbell Lane after their son told police he had received a disturbing call from them. When they got there, no one was inside and their vehicle was also missing.

An investigation revealed the couple might be in area of the forest in Hernando County which prompted Pinellas Sheriff's deputies to contact the Hernando County Sheriff's Office to conduct a search.

Evidence found in their home indicates Glenda may have been bound before they left the home.

The investigation continues.
