NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Officers found a dead 95-year-old woman in her Gentilly Woods home. They also found a 68-year-old man who was dead in a recliner.

Officers were called to the 4900 block of Gallier Dr. on Monday at 5 p.m. for a wellness check.

There was no response at the door when they arrived, and the backdoor was open. Officers entered the residence and discovered both people.

They were pronounced dead on scene.

Their deaths are unclassified.

“While no visible signs of foul play were discovered during the initial investigation, an official determination will not be made until the completion of an autopsy by the Orleans Parish Coroner,” a New Orleans Police Department spokesman said in a statement.
