COVINGTON – The badly decomposed bodies of two people were found inside a mobile home near Covington today after officers arrived to conduct a welfare check.

The bodies were found in the Oak Villa Mobile Home Park on Ronald Reagan Highway shortly after 1 p.m. on July 24, according to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office.
