According to the H-T, a sheriff's deputy found the bodies when going to the couple’s home for a welfare check. An acquaintance of the couple had called the police because they noticed the couple’s mail piling up, and they had not seen Houston or Lore in a while.
The couple were together for about 30 years. Houston was a former book restorer at IU.
