MCSO: No foul play for 2 dead on Sun City patio

SUN CITY, AZ - Officials have determined that no foul play was involved in the deaths of two people who were found dead in a Sun City backyard Thursday.

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, detectives found the bodies of Mary Ann Higley, 77, and Harold W. Dailey, 83, on the back patio of a home on Sombrero Circle.

Detectives reportedly believe the bodies could have been on the patio since the weekend, but are not sure of why they were there.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that neighbors had complained about a smell coming from the home and alerted police.

A neighbor, said to have looked over the fence, said the bodies were lying next to each other underneath a blanket, according to the Associated Press.

No other details are known.
