Decomposed bodies of a man and woman were discovered with their throats slit before police point to a chilling clue at their home.
The bodies were found Wednesday night in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, according to NBC Philadelphia.
At around 7pm on May 18, 2022, two bodies were found in an abandoned building on North Ruth Street when authorities were responding to a call.
Police and paramedics found a woman and a man lying next to each other in one of the bedrooms of the house.
“It appears they both had their throats cut,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said, according to the report.
Both the man and woman – who Small said were likely in their 30s or 40s – were pronounced dead at the scene at 7.26pm.
The deceased were found on the second floor of the property.
Klein added: “According to the fire department [and] Paramedics, these bodies have been here for more than a day because they are already starting to decompose.”
Police found not only the two decomposed bodies, but also a bag of clothing that may have belonged to the dead woman.
A knife was also found by police at the scene, a Fox affiliate reports.
Small also said surveillance footage was being taken from outside the abandoned building.
The Police Chief Inspector said the video “may have captured someone entering or exiting this property” where both people were found dead.
Drug paraphernalia “used by squatters” were also discovered throughout the home.
Small noted, “This place is used by squatters or individuals to use the drugs, take the drugs, sell the drugs.”
He said there was “clearly a lot of drug paraphernalia” in the abandoned house, reports NBC Philadelphia.
An investigation is ongoing as no one has been arrested in connection with this case.
Police have not commented on whether or not there is any suspicious information.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the authorities.
