COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. -- Neighbors were still in shock Wednesday after a couple was found dead inside their Colonial Heights home. Deputies discovered the bodies of Steven Rogers, 54,  and his wife Elizabeth, 45, Tuesday morning when they arrived at the home to serve eviction papers to the couple whose home was in foreclosure. Deputies found the bodies in a back bedroom. Court documents revealed both Steven and Elizabeth may have been shot in the head, in an apparent murder-suicide.

"I know they were loners and they did stay to themselves, but they were great people and they left a lasting memory to me and they will forever," neighbor Wanda Ward said.

Neighbor Marvin Webb said the only time he would see the Rogers was when they were in the yard with their three dogs.

"Last week I was walking down there and they were out in the yard with the dogs and I stopped and talked to them and the dogs, pet the dogs and compared them to my little dog and the ones they got -- and they talked just as fine," Webb said.

The couple's dogs were taken to the Colonial Heights animal shelter. Family members stopped by the Floral Avenue home Wednesday morning to collect a few items.
