Elderly Couple Found Dead In Their Sydney Home
An elderly blind woman has died alone after her husband passed away in their home in Sydney's northern beaches, leaving her without support.
Police were called to the couple's house on Bynya Road in Palm Beach shortly before 9am on Tuesday.
The husband was the carer for his life-long partner, who was blind and had other disabilities, police say.
Both were aged in their 80s.
"Although yet to be confirmed by autopsies, we believe the husband has passed away naturally, unfortunately leaving the wife with no means of support," northern beaches police said on Facebook.
"She has subsequently died due to a lack of care."
Police do not believe the deaths are suspicious but a crime scene has been established and will be examined by forensic officers.
Their identities are yet to be released.
