Brewer's parents, Helen and Dennis Lucak, both 72 years old, were found dead at their home in the 11800 block of Harbor Light Drive.

The couple was found shot to death inside their bedroom. A family member reached out to police when she became concerned that the two didn't show up for church service and weren't answering the door, authorities said.
