Friends said Mr. Giuntini was a World-War-II veteran with great mobility and often walked the golf course behind his home.

Good friend John Phillips said he last saw Mr. Giuntini Thursday. “He was a guy full of life. We all use to marvel at his ability to come out here and play golf two to three times a week at 95.”

A family friend found the couple’s bodies while checking on their welfare.

Their deaths are considered suspicious. But investigators will not reveal how the victims died .

Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Ryan Smith or Sergeant Jason Radeleff of the Specialized Investigations Division (909) 387-3589.
