SUN CITY, Ariz. -- Authorities have identified two bodies found in the back patio area of a Sun City home and said no foul play was involved in the deaths.

Maricopa County Sheriff's officials said the bodies were discovered late Thursday morning at a house near 99th Avenue and Beardsley.

They were identified Friday as 77-year-old Mary Ann Higley and 83-year-old Harold W. Dailey.

The bodies were taken to the county Medical Examiners' Office to determine the cause of death.

The bodies may have been there since last weekend. It wasn't known if the two were related or in a relationship.

Neighbors had complained of a smell coming from the area Thursday and called 911.
