Murder/Suicide Suspected in Phoenix Trailer Deaths
Two dead bodies were found in a Phoenix trailer home last night, and the cops suspect it to be a murder/suicide.
Phoenix Sergeant Steve Martos says police were called to a trailer in the 2600 block of East Morrow Drive about about 7 p.m. after an elderly man found the body of a woman inside the trailer.
The man who found the body is the homeowner's brother -- he'd gone to the trailer to check on the 53-year-old man. The woman whose body he found, police believe, was that of his brother's 56-year-old girlfriend.
Detectives continued to search the trailer and found the body of the homeowner.
All Phoenix police will say at this point is that they suspect the deaths to be a murder/suicide. The identities of the victims -- and the elderly brother -- have not been released. It's also unclear who killed whom -- and how.
Martos says he'll provide further details when they become available.
