The bodies of a man, 30, and a woman in her 20s were found at a home in Eagleby, south of Brisbane, early on Monday afternoon.

Neighbours said the couple had not been seen since Thursday, and their children – aged five, four and 15-months-old – had not been living at the home.

Police established a crime scene at the Francoise Street property and are investigating how the pair died.   

Simone Whye, a neighbour and 18-year resident of the street, said the couple’s death seemed ‘out of sorts’, The Courier Mail reported.   

‘They had three young girls they’ve left behind,’ she said.

‘They were very quiet, very friendly people.’

The couple had been living in the house since October, and Ms Whye said she kept an eye on it for the couple although she did not know them very well.  

Children’s toys could be seen sitting in the backyard of the house, which is still cordoned-off with police tape.
