A San Bernardino County sheriff deputy was on patrol about 4 p.m., when the mail carrier flagged him down and told the official about the suspicious nature of the piles of mail at the home, located on the 35000 block of Juniper Avenue.

When the deputy could not get an answer after knocking on the home’s doors, he made entry to check on the occupants’ welfare, at which time the official found the lifeless bodies of two men.

Based on the circumstances, investigators from the Sheriff’s Specialized Investigation Division – Homicide Detail responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.

“Due to the condition of the bodies, the cause and manner of death are not immediately known,” officials explained as the investigation was getting underway.

Officials have not released the names of the victims, pending further investigation, identification, and notification of the men’s families.

Authorities have not released any further details about their investigation, which is active and ongoing.
