Police have identified a husband and wife, both in their 70s, as homicide victims in Abbotsford, B.C.

Investigators say 77-year-old Arnold De Jong and 76-year-old Joanne De Jong were found dead in a home on Monday.

A statement from police says it's unclear if the killings were random or targeted.

Sgt. David Lee of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says they are releasing the names and a photo of the victims to further the investigation and identify other possible witnesses.

The statement says homicide investigators are still collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses and trying to build a timeline in the hours before and after the deaths.

Const. Paul Walker with Abbotsford police says every available resource is being used to solve the homicides and the safety of citizens and the community is the department's highest priority.
