MILLSBORO, Del. - Delaware State Police say the autopsies of two men whose bodies were found Tuesday inside a Millsboro home have determined they were shot to death.

The deaths of 27-year-old William Hopkins and 29-year-old Cletis T. Nelson, both of Millsboro, have been classified as a double homicide. According to police, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined that both victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds to their upper bodies.

Police said they began investigating the incident shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday after troopers were called to a home located on the 28000 block of Harmons Hill Road, when a concerned family member of Nelson went to the home after being unable to contact him for an extended period of time. The family member entered the home and found the bodies of Nelson and Hopkins and called state police. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, a preliminary investigation has determined that there was no indication of forced entry into the home and no suspect information is available at this time. Police said detectives are still following leads and conducting interviews in connection with the investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective Fred Chambers of the DSP Homicide Unit at (302) 388-0196. Information can also be provided to Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
