Foul play is not believed to be involved in the couple’s deaths, police said. Autopsies are expected to be conducted this week.

“Our department sends its condolences to the Parkers’ family and friends,” police said in a statement Tuesday.

Police said Nov. 23 that they were searching for the couple, who lived in the township’s Warren Grove section. Investigators conducted a search-and-rescue operation in the wooded area near Route 539 and Warren Grove Road, in Barnegat and Stafford townships, on Nov. 24. Authorities located their ATV and a shotgun belonging to them, police said.
