ALOHA, OR (KPTV) - A homicide investigation was launched after a man and a woman were found dead at an Aloha mobile home park. 

Deputies were called out to Pine Ridge Mobile Park on the 6900 block of Southwest 195th Avenue at 5:16 p.m. Friday.

Deputies say the person who found the bodies is related to at least one of people who died.

Deputies said the investigation remains in the early stages and no further details were immediately released.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit detectives are leading the investigation.

FOX 12 spoke with neighbors Friday night who said this is a safe neighborhood.

"This is actually a really nice place to live," Robert Painter-Johnson said. "People are pretty good about keeping their places up, keeping to themselves."

Painter-Johnson said a lot of elderly people live in the area.

"To have somebody found dead inside a unit probably isn't that big a deal, because there are a lot of elderly people that live here," Painter-Johnson said. "This was at one time a retirement park. So, that does happen every once in awhile, but a homicide? That's not something that we are used to."

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue chaplains were at the scene Friday attending to the family member who made the discovery.

Law enforcement members have not released a cause of death.

The sheriff's office says there is no threat to the public related to this case.
