PD: Bodies of male, female discovered in Phoenix home

PHOENIX - Police are investigating after two bodies were discovered inside a Phoenix home Friday morning.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said the bodies of a male and a female were located in a home near Indian School Road and 59th Avenue Friday afternoon.

Thompson said the bodies had been there for "several days."

Police were called after friends of the man and woman had not seen them for several days and received no response when attempting to contact them. The friends looked inside and saw one of the victims who was unresponsive.

Official cause of death is unknown, but Thompson said, "early indications" show that it may have been a murder-suicide. He said a medical examiner has been called in.

Thompson said there were some animals in the home and they are being removed.

The names of the man and woman have not been released.
