A day after the bodies of a Layton couple were discovered Monday inside their home, police were no closer to discovering how they died.

Autopsies performed Tuesday morning on Shauna and Larry Anderson, ages 51 and 47, did not reveal any information that would confirm a cause of death, Layton police Lt. Travis Lyman said in a news release.

Toxicology testing is now being done, but those results will not be known for at least several weeks, Lyman said.

"The investigation is ongoing, but at this time we are not looking for any additional persons of interest," said Lt. Travis Lyman, adding that police do not anticipate releasing additional information about the case until toxicology testing is complete.

Police went to the Andersons’ home in the Quail Ridge Mobile Home Park on Monday about 9 a.m., after Larry Anderson’s employer reported he had not arrived at work.

Officers entered the home and found the couple’s bodies inside.

There was no obvious sign of foul play and no obvious cause of death, Lyman said. Fire crews tested for carbon monoxide, but levels were not elevated, Lyman said.

Lyman declined to further describe conditions inside the mobile home or where inside the home the bodies were found.

"There is nothing obvious at the scene that indicates what has happened," Lyman said Monday. "There are no glaringly obvious things that point us in one direction or another."
