Homeowners that live along Acorn Court are scratching their heads after finding out the badly decomposed remains of their next door neighbors were found over the weekend.

Barbara Owens lives a few doors from the house where Chattanooga Police found 63-year-old identical twins; Anthony and Andrew Johnson's skeletal remains sitting in recliners in their living room.

Multiple sources say the twins' sister tried to check on them in August 2011, but didn't have a key. She called police, who would not force their way in. Finally, this weekend another family member was able to get a key to go inside.
