Two people who failed to show up for a planned trip to San Francisco were found dead Saturday inside a San Diego home, police said.
A man and a woman were found dead inside a home on Via Rivera in the Torrey Highlands neighborhood at approximately 10 p.m., according to a San Diego Police Department spokesperson.
Torrey Highlands is a residential area south of State Route 56 and west of Black Mountain Road and Interstate 15.
Officers were asked to perform a welfare check on the home because the couple living there were expected to arrive in San Francisco for a visit earlier Saturday.
When officers looked through a window, they saw someone on the floor in the living room.
Investigators say they found the bodies of two people, described as a man and a woman in their 50s, suffering from trauma to the upper body.
No one was found in the home, police said, and the contents of the home did not appear to be disturbed.
Neighbor Carla Flores was surprise to hear what had happened.
"I’m in disbelief this is a quiet, safe neighborhood. I feel deeply sorry and it’s just tragic, can’t imagine anything like that happening here," said Flores.

The also say the male victim worked at Qualcomm and the wife had just retired from the Scripps Research Institute, they also have a son.
