Smith says foul play is suspected and investigators believe that the suspect involved is injured. It’s unclear how long the couple had been dead inside the residence.

No arrests had been made as of Tuesday night.

Neighbors tell the Bowling Green Daily News that Kenneth Neafus was the pastor at Little Muddy Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Morgantown.

State police have not released a possible motive for the killings.
