PRINCES LAKES, Ind. (WISH) — The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after the discovery of a couple dead on the back porch of a home.

It happened in the 600 block of West Lakeview Drive when officials were dispatched out for a welfare check Saturday around 11:30 p.m.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the home after a call from man saying he had not been able to reach his stepson.

Authorities learned that the couple living at the residence, Jason and Melissa Wojcik, had been in the process of splitting up.

When they arrived at the residence, officers found the bodies of Jason and Melissa Wojcik on the back patio. A police report indicates officers located a gun under the thigh of Jason Wojcik.

Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox says autopsies were conducted Sunday for both individuals, with results pending from the county coroner.
