The discovery was made Sunday afternoon at a home in the 900 block of Monroe Street, Sauk Prairie police said.

Neighbors had called police after the two people had not been seen for a week, and the grass hadn't been cut.

Police gave no indication of how the residents died, or the genders of the two.

The identities were to be released after notification of family.
