FAITH — A man and woman were found dead in a home on Jackson Road on Tuesday in what Rowan County authorities say may have been a murder-suicide.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 report about a stabbing or gunshot at a home at 730 Jackson Road, off Castor Road just outside Faith.

The home, which sits far off the road, was surrounded by dozens of family members and others as investigators collected evidence Tuesday.

Officers from the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division were dispatched to the home at 12:12 p.m., officials said.

The caller reported finding two people dead inside the locked two-story home. Patrol officers confirmed that the victims are a man and woman.

The Sheriff’s Office’s Criminal Investigations Division responded and collected evidence.

The case is being treated as a homicide, sheriff’s officials said. The identities of the victims are being withheld pending family notification, officials said.

The bodies will be sent to the N.C. Medical Examiner’s Office.
