Elderly couple found dead in their rural Missouri home

Pulaski County, Mo. — A death investigation is underway in Pulaski County (Waynesville, Missouri) after an elderly couple was found dead in their home. 

Sheriff Ron Long says the bodies of 73-year-old Alva "Alvey" Green and 75-year-old Martha Jeffries were found in their home Thursday on Syracuse Lane near Laquey.

The bodies were discovered by families members, after the two had not been seen for several weeks. 

Officials say the couple had been deceased for a prolonged period of time, making the cause of death difficult to determine.
