Cape Coral police do not expect to release additional information concerning the deaths of a man and woman found dead in a hot tub at the man’s home this weekend until Monday.

The two have been identified as Robert D. Jones, 78, and Jennifer L Britt, 26, an acquaintance.

The two were found dead in the hot tub at 7:45 a.m. Saturday by Jones’ roommate.

Police arriving at the home at 1050 S.E. 21st Ave. confirmed that both had died. There were no outward signs of trauma to Britt or Jones, and foul play is not suspected, police said.

The investigation, however, is ongoing, officials added.

The Lee County Medical Examiner will determine cause of death.
