Elderly couple found dead in Miramar home

An elderly couple were found dead Thursday morning inside a Miramar home, according to police.

A family member called 911 at about 11:30 a.m. to report a medical condition. When rescue crews arrived at the home in the 3200 block of Southwest 173rd Terrace, they found the bodies of Roberto Martinez, 86, and Berta Martinez, 87, said police spokeswoman Tania Rues.

Rues said police are investigating, but carbon monoxide tests came back negative and there were no apparent signs of foul play.

The cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner’s office, Rues said.
