BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore County Police Department is investigating a double homicide after two people were found dead inside a Towson apartment Monday morning.
Officers were called to the scene just after 9:15 a.m., and found two people dead inside the building on Lambourne Rd.
Police say they were called after a maintenance man went into an apartment and found two men dead inside.
“A man inside said maintenance found two dead bodies inside this morning apparently, which I never think would ever happen here, so I’m a little bit in shock,” apartment resident Kaitlyn Elinsky said.
Shawn Vincent, with Baltimore Co. PD, says medical examiners are on scene to examine the bodies and determine the cause of death for the two men.
“We’re not confirming the injuries at this point,” Vinson said. “There was obvious trauma to both of the victims inside the apartment. We’re investigating this as a double homicide right now. Without the autopsy being done, we just won’t know for sure.”
Police won’t say what physical evidence or weapons were at the scene, but will look for, “what cameras are around, who got into the building and what neighbors saw and heard.”
Detectives say the maintenance worker entered to do routine work, not because someone called about a disturbance.
Police are asking anyone with information on this incident to contact investigators.
