2 found dead inside Newport home

NEWPORT, Ky. -- Officers performing a well-being check at a Northern Kentucky home found the bodies of two people who died from “suspicious” causes.

The bodies of a man and a woman were located at about 4:30 p.m. inside an apartment in the 900 block of Roberts Street in Newport.

Officers said they responded to the home after receiving a call from a concerned neighbor. That person said the residents of the apartment hadn't been seen in more than a day.

The names of the deceased weren't released, but neighbors told WCPO they're both about 40 years old. The nature of their relationship isn’t clear.

Police said they're treating the matter as a suspicious death investigation. But they haven't indicated what may have caused the deaths.
