CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Neighbors in west Charlotte said they're shocked after two people were found dead on Thursday.

Clyde Valentine and his wife, Ida, were found dead when their son went to the home and found their bodies around 4 p.m. Thursday.

Police have not commented on any motive in the deaths but say they are not looking for a suspect.

Valentine was a teacher at Philip O. Berry Academy and was suspended in June when he was charged with indecent liberties with a minor. That minor was not a student at the school.

Last month, he faced a new charge of statutory rape.

Police are not saying if any of that is connected to the deaths.

Eyewitness News talked to neighbors who are trying to process what happened.

“I’m surprised and shocked,” neighbor Tabitha Jackson said. “Things happen everywhere, but I’m kind of devastated because I have a son who likes to go over his friend’s house. And I stressed to him that he just can’t walk everywhere because things happen in the neighborhood.”
