Two bodies found in PSL home identified

PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - Police have identified the man and woman found dead in their Port St. Lucie home on 335 Northeast Solida Circle Sunday.

Officers were called to the home around 3 p.m., where they found Frank Houck, 51, and Irene Reiss, 58, dead inside.

Dan and Debbie Furlo, who live near where the bodies were found, said they are concerned by the death investigation because they know the Houck.

"It's very sad. It's tough to be so close to home and have that happen," said Debbie Furlo.

Dan Furlo describes Houck as a nice guy.

"He was good to us. He was good to everybody I've seen. I don't think there's anybody in this neighborhood that can say anything bad about him," Dan said.

James Harrelson, a man who also lives near the home, said that he found Houck and Reiss dead before police arrived.

Harrelson told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers he knew the couple only by their first names and that Houck repaired cars. He said a woman he thinks was at the home to talk about car repairs Sunday afternoon apparently found them dead.

"She came out of the house screaming and her little boy said, ‘They're dead,'" Harrelson said. "I told her to get [the boy] out to the car and I went inside to look."

Harrelson told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers that he found the Houck sitting in a chair at the kitchen table, his head tilted back, and Reiss on the couch. He said he saw no blood in the home and that both Houck and Reiss were "cold to the touch".
