WATERTOWN, Conn. (AP) _ Watertown police say they are searching for two people who sold a car belonging to a victim in a double homicide.

Police say 58-year-old Donna Bouffard and her son, 26-year-old Michael Perkins, had been dead for up to five days before their bodies were discovered on Saturday. Police had gone to investigate after neighbors reported a strong odor emanating from their house in the Oakville section of the city.

Police later recovered Bouffard’s 2007 Lincoln Town car in Norwich.

They say the people in possession of the car told them they purchased the vehicle from 36-year-old Claude Turner and 26-year-old Elizabeth Swiderski.

Police say the Turner and Swiderski had been staying in the Bouffard’s home.

Autopsies on the bodies of Bouffard and Perkins were scheduled for Monday.
