FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. -

Two bodies were found inside a Fuquay-Varina home Saturday, according to the Wake County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Donnie Harrison the bodies of David Eugene McKoy, 66, and Arthur Lee Brown, 78, were found by a neighbor in a residence at 236 Howard Road. The sheriff's office received a call concerning the bodies around 1:10 p.m.

Harrison said it appeared there was forced entry into the home, but could not confirm the cause of death for either man or exactly when they died.

Neighbor Terry Harris said his uncle, David McKoy, is one of the victims.

"The family's kind of upset. They're kind of shook up right now," Harris said.

Harris said said the two victims worked together and that McKoy had recently moved in temporarily as he looked for an apartment.

He said he believes the men were robbed and shot to death.

"After they said the doors were kicked in and all that, so I figured that whoever did it was probably trying to rob them," Harris said. "It is scary and we don't know what to expect. I mean, nobody can believe it."
