York regional police’s homicide unit is investigating after married couple were found dead inside their apartment in Richmond Hill.

Police were called to a condo on Clarissa Drive, near Yonge Street and Major Mackenzie Drive East, around 8:40 p.m. Monday.

The family members who called police had entered the unit after not being able to get in touch with their loved ones. Once inside, they found both people dead.

The victims have been identified as 68-year-old Sara Cimerman and 73-year-old Efraim Cimerman.

The cause of death was not released, but York police Const. Laura Nicolle says only Sara Cimerman’s death is being treated as suspicious.

Police don’t believe there are any outstanding suspects and said there were no signs of forced entry.
