Police find decomposed bodies of twins in home

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Police are investigating the discovery of the decomposed bodies of 63-year-old twins in a Chattanooga home.

Chattanooga police officers were called to the home this past weekend to check on the residents' well-being.

Police found the skeletal remains of Andrew and Anthony Johnson sitting in recliners in their living room. Investigators think they died in early 2011 based on the bodies' conditions.

Officials said there were no obvious signs of trauma or foul play. Both men were diabetics.

A medical examiner will determine the cause of death. Police are still investigating.
