The Manchester Police are hunting two men they say could be responsible for the murder of an elderly couple on Monday. 

Head of the police division, Superintendent Vendolyn Cameron-Powell, declined to give the names of the persons she described as young men.

She explains that revealing the names at this time could compromise the investigations. 

Meanwhile, she says investigators are also trying to find the couple's burgundy 1998 Toyota Camry motorcar. 

She says the couple parked the car outside their home in Woodstock after returning from church on Monday night. 

Meanwhile, Superintendent Powell says the killing was vicious based on the number of stabs inflicted on the couple.

Superintendent Powell says the police are concerned about the safety of elderly people across Jamaica. 

She is urging relatives to pay greater attention to the elderly members of their families. 

The couple, Lanscell Gregory and Corretta Gregory, were believed to have been in their late 70s  

Their bodies were found after efforts by family members to contact them via cellular phone proved futile.
