Death of Couple at Lake County: The ends of a man and a woman at an apartment in a senior living facility are being looked into by Lake County police.
Officers responded on December 31, according to WFTV, to a report of possible suspicious activity at Waterman Village in Mount Dora.
When the police arrived, they discovered a man and a woman who had died.

The couple’s cause of death has not been made public. However, during a press conference on Sunday, authorities said their deaths were suspicious and would be considered homicide.
According to Mount Dora police, a security guard reported the unusual activities by dialing 911.
According to WFTV, they repeatedly questioned police about whether they were looking for a suspect and about the neighborhood’s safety.
Mike Gibson, the interim police chief, said there was no threat to the public but refrained from saying anything else.
In a conversation with a couple at the press conference, WFTV learned that the days leading up to this tragedy had been filled with odd occurrences.
A woman allegedly tried to convince Frank and Pat Blair to let her inside their home the day before the killings.
“I lost my car key and need to call my spouse, but my phone needs to charge,” she explained. Could I charge my phone inside, please?” said Frank Blair.
Pat claimed that two police officers asked them to look at a photo of three people. They had to identify her, perhaps.
The Blairs allegedly told WFTV that police would not reveal if the individuals in the pictures were suspects in the slayings or whether the woman who attempted to enter their home was connected to the killings.
Police refused to divulge any identities until the victim’s son was in town, but they said they should be ready to provide more details on Monday and that they had been in contact with him.
