The Sacramento County Coroner's Office has identified the woman as 41-year-old Kassandra Atterberry.
Investigators have not yet identified the other person, only confirming that he is a man.
Family members told police they had not heard from the couple in a while and were worried. A family member found the two bodies when checking their home last evening.
Authorities say that the man and Atterberry were in a relationship.
Investigators haven't revealed if Atterberry is the suspect or the victim in this murder-suicide case.
