Three dead bodies were discovered in an up-scale neighborhood in Orlando, Florida and officials say that they had been there for weeks without anyone noticing. According to Fox News on Dec. 9, a properties manager went to check on a family in a gated golf course community after he hadn’t seen or heard from the family in a while.
When he arrived, the foul odor emanating from the property prompted a call to the police. When police checked the Eagle Creek home they found three decomposing bodies that had been there for weeks, according to the medical examiner.
Orange County Sheriff’s spokesperson Captain Angelo Nieves did not give the names of the victims but did say the bodies were those of a 34-year-old woman, a 50-year-old man and a child. Police are calling this a “murder-suicide” at this time. Police did say that the medical examiner has determined that these people had been dead for about three weeks.
This discovery is on the heels of another murder-suicide discovered this weekend in Connecticut. A man shot and killed three women then turned the gun on himself. The man, who is the suspect in the Connecticut murder, met the police at the door with a toddler in his arms. He put down the toddler than shot himself in the head, in this gruesome Connecticut case.
