Greensboro, NC -- Greensboro police found two women - one who was reported missing - dead in a home Thursday night after receiving information from authorities in Germantown, TN.

Yan Wu's co-workers at UNCG filed a missing persons report Thursday. Police said her fellow employees were concerned after she didn't show up to work for several days.

Officers were unable to find Wu or her husband, Guanghui Lei, during their daytime investigation. The couple and two children have a home in the 400 block of Coronado Drive. 

Tennessee authorities alerted Greensboro Police Department they located Lei in Germantown. Based on new information, investigators went into the home on Coronado Drive where they found Wu and Lei's sister, Bi Fang Liu, shot dead. 

According to neighbors, the couple and their children never seemed out of place.

"He always had a smile," said Lin Lawson who says Guanghui was always very friendly and helpful as a neighbor.

"They were very quiet; the children were quiet. There was a little bit of a language barrier," said another neighbor, Rachel Shirley.

The couple's children were found unharmed in Germantown. Police there are trying to place them either with social service or a family member.

"You never know what goes on in someone's home or what their personal lives are for something like this to happen," said Lawson.

Police say Lei is in custody in Germantown, awaiting extradition to NC. He has been charged with two counts of First Degree Murder. 

According to UNCG, Wu was the assistant director for the school continual learning division. She worked at the school for more than 10 years after getting a master's degree in 2002.

In a statement to News 2, the school wrote, in part, "we offer our condolences and payers to Yan's family. Her bright spirit and committment to Higher Education will be greatly missed."
