Two people are dead inside a Bonita Springs home.

Bonita Springs Fire Control and Rescue District confirmed Monday they were called to a home on Harbor Cove Court inside the Bonita Bay community off US-41.

The scene near homes is not something those who have lived in the community more than seven years would have expected to see.

“Shocked, I mean, you wouldn’t think of something like that happening here, you know,” neighbor Peter Tinsman said.

With no other information, people wonder and worry about what happened in the home.

“I hope it wasn’t a homicide or anything like that,” neighbor Jana Thomas said. “But it’s tragic whatever. Super sad for the folks who lost their loved ones.”

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has not released any details, only confirming it’s an active investigation.
