LAYTON, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – A husband and wife were found dead in their Layton home Monday. Shauna Anderson, 51, and Larry Anderson, 47, were found Monday around 9:20 a.m. inside their home at the Quail Ridge Mobile Home Park. 

As soon as Heather Greenwood heard the news on the radio that a couple was found dead in the quail ridge mobile home park, she knew who it was.

"I was like that's Larry and Shauna. That's my neighbors,” said Greenwood.

Greenwood says she has reason to believe Shauna Anderson wasn't very happy in her home. "She was on a lot of medicines, had a lot of mental, emotional and physical issues."

Layton police got a call early Monday morning that Shauna’s husband, 47-year-old Larry Anderson hadn't shown up for work. When police arrived at the home, they found Larry and Shauna dead.

Layton City Police Lt. Travis Lyman told ABC 4 Utah, "At this point there is nothing that clearly indicates what happened. There are no obvious signs or cause of death that would point us in any direction."

The Layton Fire Department even came out to check if there had been a carbon monoxide leak in the home, but it was all clear. At this point police are stumped.

"It's unusual that there's not something that jumps out a little quicker,” said Lt. Lyman.

Lyman says investigators are now looking at the couple's phones and computers to see if there's any indication of an online presence that could help them understand what happened.   

According to Greenwood, they may want to start with Facebook.

"On July 3rd there were two interesting posts,” explained Greenwood.

She showed us the Facebook posts. In one Shauna is reaching out to friends asking for a place to stay because she wants to move out of her house and another where Shauna said, "I wish my house would get carried away by a hurricane, and or anything horrific and put an end to all this madness inside of these walls."

Greenwood told ABC 4 Utah, "I still think, my gut instinct is one of them didn't want to go without the other."

Layton Police are not ruling out murder-suicide at this point, they say the autopsies should help give them some answers. They expect to have those results Tuesday.

Tuesday police released the results of the autopsies on Shauna and Larry. Police say the autopsies did not reveal any information that would confirm a cause of death. Toxicology testing is being done now, but it may take weeks to get those results.

The investigation is ongoing, and police are not looking for any additional persons of interest at this time.
