The alarm was raised when both Jonathan, who works at a local factory and Derisa, a legal secretary, failed to show up for work.
Neighbours reported seeing their 13-year-old son Joel leave for school yesterday morning and the couple were then spotted walking their King Charles spaniels at 8.45am.
Neighbour Jennifer Isaacs, 34, a food handler, has lived opposite the family for five years and said they were a ''kind, lovely'' couple who had three children.
She said: "They were really lovely people. I've lived by them for the past five years and I used to see them every day walking their dogs on my way to work. They had three King Charles which they dotted on.
"The neighbourhood is in total shock as this is normally such a quiet area. We're desperate to piece together exactly what's happened as no one knows at the moment.
"They were a lovely, genuine, hardworking couple. I just dread to think what happened to them.
"When I got home from work at about 4:30pm there were about five police cars outside. We then saw police later that evening taking away their dogs and then their bodies, it's really shocking.
"Their youngest son went to school as normal and I've heard that the alarm was raised when John didn't go into work."
It is believed the couple have two other children, Christopher, 26, and Joshua, 23.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Formal ID has not yet been carried out.Post mortems will take place today, 3 October 2013. Officers from the Major Crime Investigation Team are continuing with their enquiries.
"Specially-trained Family Liaison Officers have been deployed to provide support to the family.
Additional officers are also working in the area over the coming days to offer reassurance to the local community."
Flowers were laid outside the family home. One tribute read: 'Thinking of you Reecey, RIP'.
