The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office has released surveillance photos of "persons of interest" in the death of Cave Creek resident Douglas Charles Engstler. The unidentified man and woman  were taped entering an unnamed convenience store in metropolitan Phoenix. Police want to speak with the pair regarding Engstler's death, which is being investigated as a homicide.

Engstler, 63, was found dead in his Cave Creek home by a relative on Tuesday. The cause of death has not been officially released. Anyone with information about the case or the people in the surveillance photo is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 602-876-1011.
