Police say couple found dead in Truckee motel room were from Hollister

A man and woman found dead Sept. 26 in a Truckee motel room have been identified as a couple from the Hollister area.

Police said the husband and wife were identified as Anthony Marsh, 46, and Linda Marsh, 63. The two were found dead at a motel on Donner Pass Road.

Because they could not be immediately identified and next of kin notified, release of their names was delayed, according to a Truckee Police Department news release.

After completing the initial scene investigation and preliminary autopsy work, it does not appear that foul play was involved, police said. The exact cause of death is pending toxicology reports, which may take eight to 10 weeks. The cause of death will be released by the Nevada County Sheriff/Coroner.
