Both women were pronounced dead.

"She was a sweet soul. She was a good soul. She will be very much missed."

It's how Iona Seller's neighbor describes her. Now she only has memories to share of her 75-year-old neighbor and her 29-year-old granddaughter Autumn Harvey.

Like police, neighbors are still trying to process what happened inside the home on Taos Circle.

“I’ve never seen anything like this. They were always good people those two were good people, friendly, I always cut their grass or take stuff to the dump for them, and they are pretty good people,” one neighbor told WMAR-2 News.

Baltimore County Police do not know when the murders happened, but they got a call just before 10 Sunday morning from someone asking for police to check on the home.

“I saw the police go by about a quarter of 10 in the morning and I thought nothing of it they were just driving by but then a little later on somebody knocked on my door and he asked for information, and I saw the tape at that point, and I knew it was going to be bad,” neighbors told WMAR-2 News.

There is no suspect in custody.
