Man Finds Wife and Daughter Murdered in Downtown Phoenix Home

A Phoenix man returned home today to find two bodies in his house, which police believe to be those of his wife and daughter. 

Phoenix Police Sergeant Trent Crump says neighbors near the 2500 block of East Willetta Street remembered hearing gun shots around 3 and 6 p.m. the day before, and possible yelling, but no one reported the noise. 

Several families shared the home, and Crump says there's an adjoining house with more family members living in it. The PD is trying to track down the whole family for questioning.
The police had blocked off most of the street, and neighbors made calls to figure out what was happening as local broadcast reporters were hurriedly harassing anyone with tears in their eyes for a few soundbites. 

Speaking to a broadcast reporter, one man in maroon scrubs said there had been "all sorts of shenanigans" going on near the home, citing noise and cars coming and going.
