CLACKAMAS, OR (KPTV) -

The Clackamas County Major Crimes Team is investigating the deaths of two people whose bodies were discovered in a mobile home park Wednesday morning.  

Deputies were called out to the Hearthwood Village Mobile Home Park on the 16200 block of Hearthwood Drive at 9:05 a.m. Wednesday.

Neighbors reported not having seen the people in one of the homes for several days and said nobody was answering their door.

Deputies went into the home and found the bodies of a man and woman. Investigators said their deaths appeared suspicious.

Neighbors said they talked to the couple last week as they packed for a vacation. 

"The cars weren't moved," said neighbor Linda Vetter. "We just thought they were in Las Vegas." 

The cause of the deaths and the identities of the man and woman were not immediately released by deputies. 

Neighbors who knew them well said the woman had just lost her job of 25 years, managing the mobile home park. 

"Just devastation," Vetter said of their deaths. "I mean, for her kids. I mean, this is like a family park. Everyone's like family in here."

The Clackamas County Medical Examiner's office and the Clackamas County Major Crimes Team responded to investigate.

Neighbors said they've never had a break-in at the park and crime overall is very low. 

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is seeking tips in this case. Information can be left on the sheriff's office tip line at 503-723-4949 or online at http://web3.clackamas.us/contact/tip.jsp. Refer to case number 15-23650.
