Homicide investigators aren’t looking for suspects after two bodies were found inside a Durham residence on Thursday, saying their deaths are “self-contained.”
Police say the bodies, which were found at around 11:45am at 26 Edmonson Avenue in Hampton, were showing obvious signs of trauma. Police haven’t said if the case is a double suicide or a murder-suicide.
“It’s quite a shock. Very shocking, very shocking to see all this activity going on around here,” said one woman who lives in the neighbourhood.
Police say they won’t be releasing the names of the deceased until they are certain family has been notified. They expect to complete their inspection of the scene over the weekend, with a post-mortem exam scheduled for Monday.
Reports say a couple in their 50’s lived in the house. One area resident says he was told by police a gun was involved in the incident.
