FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Police are treating the deaths of two people as suspicious after their bodies were found in a bedroom of a home in the 12000-block of Wandering Way on Thursday morning.
Police were called to the home just before 9 a.m. by a coworker and family member who went to check on a man after he didn’t show up to work for a couple of days.
When the coworker and family member went into the home in the Lake of Carroll Creek addition, they found a man and a woman dead in a bedroom.
Police said the man and woman had trauma to their bodies but did not provide details on how they may have died.
“I know people get shaken up when things like this happen,” Cpl. Jeremy Tinkel, the spokesman for the Allen County Sheriff’s Department, said. “We have to call it suspicious until the investigation is complete, but I don’t know there’s any reason for people to be alarmed at this point.”
The coroner’s office will release the cause and manner of deaths after performing autopsies.
