ELSMERE, KY (FOX19) -

The autopsies have been completed for the two people found dead inside an Elsmere home last week.

Investigators officially ruled out suicide in the cases of Carolyn Tomlinson, 28, and Charles Eapmon.

A family member discovered the unresponsive individuals around 10 a.m. on April 6 and called police to the Merravay Drive residence.

Their deaths have been ruled to be a homicide, according to Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders.

No arrests have been made in connection to the homicide. 

Tiarra Washum is the landlord of the Merravay Dr. house. Washum said she rented the house out to Tomlinson three years ago and is devastated by the news. 

"It was awful," Washum told FOX19 NOW. "I cried all day yesterday."

Washum said she was not only the landlord for Tomlinson, but a close friend. 

"She was great. She was amazing," Washum said. "She would do anything for anybody and had a big heart. Her kids were her world."

The landlord said that Tomlinson and Eapmon were model tenants and she cannot comprehend who would have murdered the couple. 

A makeshift memorial was set up under a tree in the front yard while investigators remained on scene last Thursday.
