Death investigation in South Seattle

On May 2nd at approximately 9:12 a.m., South Precinct patrol officers responded to 4100 block of 50th Avenue South to “check the welfare” of the residents.  Officers arrived and found the house to be secure.  They made entry and located the two victims lying next to each other on the floor in one of the bedrooms.  Both victims were obviously dead. 

With the cause of the deaths unknown and out of an abundance of caution, Homicide and CSI detectives were called to respond.  Homicide detectives will be responsible for carrying out the investigation.  In light of the decomposed state of the bodies and a lack of victim identification, the cause and manner of death are pending autopsy by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
