Two Delaware men found dead in Millsboro home



Delaware State Police are investigating a double murder after the discovery of two bodies inside a Sussex County home.

A family member of one of the victims found the two men inside a home in the 28000 block of Harmons Hill Road early Tuesday morning.  Police say 27 year old William Hopkins and 29 year old Cletis Nelson, both of Millsboro, were found dead inside.

Police say there was no sign of forced entry into the home and they have no suspect information at this time. But despite that, police are still classifying the deaths as a double murder.

The bodies have been turned over to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the exact cause and manner of death.
