Kudat: The 29-year-old son of a local couple in their 50s was shocked to find them dead when he came to visit them in Kg Barambangon, Sikuati at about 1.10pm on Wednesday.
Kudat Police Chief DSP Dawi Ossen identified them as 53-year-old Madison Yaranggi and his 54-year-old wife, Sinundihing Masagap.
The man was found in a pool of blood in the living room with a six-centimeter slash wound to the head, while the wife was found hanged by a rope from the kitchen ceiling. No traces of forced entry were found at the scene.
It was learnt that their children found nothing amiss when they last spoke to their parents at about 11pm the previous day.
The couple stayed in the house together while their children and grandchildren stayed in an adjoining house.
Police are investigating the case under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
