EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. – A couple found dead inside an El Paso County home early Saturday morning has been identified.

The bodies of Larry Nelson, 72, and Pamela Nelson, 70, were found just before 2 a.m. after deputies were dispatched to the 13500 block of Hobby Horse Lane to perform a welfare check on the couple.

It’s still not clear who or what prompted deputies to check on the well-being of the couple.
