COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - College Station Police have identified two people found dead in a motel room Monday afternoon.

Police say the deceased have been identified as 81-year-old Edgar Louis Hoch Jr. from Texas and 85-year-old Susan Love Droste from South Carolina. Police added they did not have specific cities of residence for them.

The two were discovered Monday just before 2:00 p.m. at a motel in the 2300 block of Texas Avenue near Brentwood Drive.
