Police in Culver City are investigating a double homicide involving a man in his 80s and a woman in her 20s, according to the Daily News. The male victim has been identified as 89-year-old Lucien Bergez, however while the female victim's identity is known, her name is being withheld until her relatives can be notified. The bodies were found Tuesday morning inside a home on the 4000 block of Huron Avenue.

Lt. Milton McKinnon of the Culver City Police Department said they are following up on numerous leads, and that the deaths are being handled as homicides. McKinnon said the police do not know "how the two were related or how they died."
