Two dead bodies were found inside an Orange County home that belongs to racer Robby Gordon. Gordon’s parents lived inside the home, per neighbors who spoke with CBS 2. However, authorities have not identified the two bodies they found inside the home at this time. [Update: The coroner’s office confirmed this morning that they were Gordon’s father and stepmother. See update here.]


The bodies were found after a family friend called for a welfare check on the home, reports CBS 2. Once inside, authorities found two dead bodies belonging to a 68-year-old man and a 57-year-old woman.

An unidentified weapon was also discovered, per The Orange County Register. The cause of death has not been determined, however, police told CBS 2 that they believe it was a murder-suicide.

Property records obtained by CBS 2 showed that the home belonged to off-road racer, Stadium Super Trucks series founder, and former NASCAR driver Robby Gordon.
