A major police probe has been launched after a man and woman were found dead inside a home in Brisbane’s south, with police revealing the deaths are being treated as suspicious.

The gruesome discovery was made about 7pm on Tuesday when police were called to a Redhead St property in Doolandella after following a “welfare call” made to police.

Formal identification of the pair is still ongoing but police believe the man is 34 and the woman is 29, a Queensland Police spokesperson said.

Police have confirmed the couple were known to each other.

It is not yet clear if the deaths are domestic violence related and Detective Inspector Michael Hogan declined to comment on whether the incident is being treated as a murder suicide.

Inspector Hogan said police are not looking for any other individuals in relation to the case.

“The clear message at the moment is just to assure the community as well, we are not looking for anyone else that is involved in this,” he told media on Wednesday.

“If anyone has information that could assist the investigators, if they could come forward to police.”

Mr Hogan said police identified two other male individuals who reside at the property but were not home at the time of the deaths.

“I can confirm they are not suspects and we’re not considering they had any involvement in the death,” he said.

The men are assisting police with inquiries.

Mr Hogan refused to comment on the state the bodies were found in or the nature of any potential injuries sustained by the man or woman.

He did not confirm whether a weapon might have been used or located at the property.

Detective Hogan said a number of vehicles located at the property will “extend the duration” of the investigation, which could continue for a number of days.

A crime scene remains at the property this afternoon, and investigations into the circumstances of their deaths are ongoing.

No-one has been arrested and no charges have been laid.

Investigators are appealing to anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the vicinity of Redhead St before 7pm to come forward.
