Police are investigating an apparent murder suicide after two bodies were found inside a Del City house last week.

About 4:30 p.m. on May 11, officers were called to the house in the 3600 block of SE 15th St. after a mail carrier noticed a strong odor and unopposed mail piling up.

The bodies of two adult males appeared to have been in the house for a very long time according to Maj. Michael Arterbury.

Police were unable to determine what happened to the people due to the condition of the remains but considered the deaths suspicious.

The medical examiner’s office Monday determined the deaths appeared to be murder-suicide, Arterbury said.

Police have not released identities of the two people nor cause of death.

    Is this address number 3628? My uncle and his son lived at the above mentioned address.

      Did they ever find out who it was I’ve been trying to find out.
