No foul play in deaths of husband, wife in Palm Coast, deputies say

Couple found dead in home; detectives waiting on tests to determine cause

PALM COAST, Fla. – A man and woman found dead in a Palm Coast home did not die under suspicious circumstances, Flagler County detectives said.

Detectives initially suspected foul play in their deaths, but preliminary autopsies revealed no traumatic injuries and indicated foul play was not a factor.

Detectives are awaiting toxicology results, which could take three to six months, to determine the cause of death for the couple.

Their bodies were found Thursday afternoon at a home on Slowdrift Turn, after a neighbor called the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office saying the residents had not been seen in a few weeks. On Friday, deputies identified the victims as Kyle Eyrich, 57, and his wife, Colleen Eyrich, 56.

According to deputies who responded, a neighbor said the couple's car had been in the driveway for a couple weeks but the couple had not been seen.

Flagler County records show deputies had been called to the home dozens of times since January 2014, including several domestic disturbances that led to arrests.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s forensics unit is assisting the FCSO’s forensic unit in the investigation.
