Man, Woman Found Dead In Aurora Motel Room

We’re working to confirm, but police and medics were just called to a motel at 86th and Aurora after receiving a report that one, or possibly two, people were found dead in a room.

More as this develops.

Update: Mygreenlake’s Amy Duncan is at the scene and says homicide detectives are en route.

Update x2: SPD tells us a department spokesman is on the way to the scene and confirms that a man and a woman were found dead in the room. We asked police to confirm whether this was a homicide,

but police would only say they were conducting a “death investigation.”

Update x3: AuroraSeattle.com is reporting that a manager broke down the door to the unit earlier today after neighbors noticed a stench coming from the room.

 When the manager opened the door, the neighbors reported seeing two bodies slumped over and suspected homicide based on the blood that was “splattered all over the wall”.

Update x4: SPD is calling this a murder-suicide. Officers have recovered a handgun from the room.
