The Flathead County Sheriff's Office released Friday the names of two people found dead Oct. 28 in their Bigfork home.

Officials identified the victims as 62-year-old Tricia DeMotts and 65-year-old Stanley Grotberg. Both suffered gunshot wounds, authorities said in a press release issued Nov. 11.

Deputies found the pair after conducting a wellness check. At the time, authorities said they were treating the deaths as a homicide investigation and had spoken to a "person of interest."

Authorities said they are finalizing their work on the case, submitted evidence for processing and passed off information to the Flathead County Attorney's Office for review.
