CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati police are investigating the deaths of a man and woman in Clifton.
Police were sent to the Durbin Drive home when the two did not show up for work on Wednesday. Neighbors said the man is a doctor, while his wife is a nurse.
Officers arrived and found a cat dead on the porch. When they forced their way into the home, the officers found the two dead inside, along with high levels of carbon monoxide.
Police had to leave the home until firefighters could arrive to help get the CO levels down.
Three officers were transported to local hospitals for treatment of CO exposure.
Officers said two cars were in the garage, but neither was running.
Neighbors said the couple, both in their 60s, moved into the home in December. The neighbors said that they believed the home had a geothermal heating system.
