A realtor in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, discovered two bodies inside a home on October 12.
The house has reportedly been on the market for over a year.
The bodies were identified as Margaret Montgomery Gibson, 86, and her son Eric Dana Gibson, 58. Margaret owned the house since 2001, according to The Herald-Sun.
Margaret’s other son, Baylor Gibson III, 66, said his brother Eric lived with his parents his whole life because of “psychiatric issues.”
Baylor told the newspaper that police haven’t released a cause of death, but “simply said it was violent.”
He said he was unsure if his brother was involved, but the police are currently investigating. The bodies were sent to the Office of the State Medical Examiner for autopsies.
Margaret was very healthy and walked every day, according to Baylor. He said he spoke with his mother just days before her death.
Baylor also said his mother was very involved with the community. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and sang in the choir of the St. Thomas More Catholic Church.
Margaret and her husband, Baylor Gibson Jr., who passed away in 2012, reportedly moved to Chapel Hill because of the proximity to UNC Hospitals and Duke University Hospitals. Gibson Jr. needed the specialized care from the hospitals due to his lymphoma and leukemia.
Margaret was selling the home at the time of her death. The house, which was on the market for over a year, was listed at $650,000.
