KAYSVILLE — Two people were found dead early Sunday in a Kaysville home.
Police responded at 2:13 a.m. to a welfare check at a Kaysville home, 220 S. Christine Way, after a newspaper delivery person reported numerous uncollected newspapers outside and lights on inside the home.
Officers observed an individual inside the residence who didn't respond to knocks on the door, according to Kaysville Police Lt. Kenton Pies. Forced entry was made into the home, and police discovered a man's body in the living room and a woman's body in a bathroom.
Police identified the victims as Jeffery Wayman, 72, and Judith Wayman, 68.
The man's ex-wife and son were contacted by police and called to the scene. She said Judith was in the early stages of Alzheimer's, and Jeffery was her primary caregiver. She believes Jeffery died first and Judith didn't know what to do.
Police said they had possibly been dead for a week.
The Kaysville Fire Department also responded to the incident and found no signs of carbon monoxide.
There were no obvious signs of foul play, police said. The victims were taken to the Utah State Medical Examiner's Office to determine the cause of their deaths.
