The couple was found after relatives from out of town and a neighbor asked police to check in on the couple.

Both had suffered traumatic wounds and were found inside their home.

A weapon was found in the home, according to a news release from Baltimore County police, but they're not saying what kind of weapon. However, police said later Tuesday that the homicides were not shootings.

At 4:01 p.m. Monday, police from the found Vaughn Pepper's body on the first floor of their home at 800 Olmstead Road. And they found Marjorie Pepper's body in the basement.

On Tuesday morning, neighbor Carrie Boyd said the crime that occurred across the street from her home is saddening.

"It's upsetting," she said. However, she said she's not afraid for her own safety, because police said there was no forced entry.

The neighborhood, with homes dating back to the 1700s, is walkable and safe, residents said.

Neighbors say they often saw Vaughn Pepper outside cutting the grass at his Sudbrook Park home, but some said they didn't see his wife often.

The Peppers were nice people who would wave "hello," they said.

The Peppers’ home was struck by a fallen tree during the July 1 derecho, a neighbor said. Since that storm, the family’s home has undergone renovations—from a new roof to converting the garage into a living space.

The Peppers were members of in Pikesville, another neighbor said.

And in what part of Havre de Grace is Pikesville located?

Agree tragic story but it's not local!! What was local was the Patriot Walk at Bulle Rock on Sunday that was not advertised in the Patch after repeated requests by the organizer!! It was a day to reflect on 9/11 and to give back to the community by supporting the Fisher House (which houses families of wounded soldiers for free). It was a great event that really deserved coverage in the Hdg Patch.

I am a champion of our local Patch, but I gotta agree with Terry E and Odudibug on this one... Seems or local stuff is what we want to read here; we get the Sun or some other paper for the Baltimore City (Sudbrook nearly touches the City line) area. We want our local stuff here as a primary matter.

You guys complaining about this story being in the Havre de Grace Patch: Maybe there's not enough interesting stuff happening out there. You guys need to start committing more crimes!

Get a Light Rail or Metro from Baltimore out there. That'll bring up your crime rate!

I couldn't agree more. Besides HdeG has it's share of bad guys and crime-we don't need to 'import' the stuff from Baltimore.
