MANATEE -- Investigators are awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine how a man and woman found dead in their Bradenton home Sunday died, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

The couple's adult special needs daughter was in the home, in the 4900 block of 20th Street Court East, when the bodies were found by the couple's nephew, Jerry Alsup. Deputies arrived on the scene about 7 p.m.

No foul play is suspected, said sheriff's office spokesman Dave Bristow.
