Detectives have determined that a man and a woman found dead in an apartment Thursday morning last week in Kansas City, Kansas, were killed in a double homicide, police said Tuesday.
Jordan Horton, 24, and Heather Miller, 22, both of Kansas City, Kansas, were found dead as officers responded to a welfare check about 11:15 a.m. at the Cambridge at River Oaks Apartments at North 70th and Riverview Avenue.
The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department initially called it a death investigation, but on Tuesday said it had turned into a homicide investigation. No suspect was in custody as of Tuesday morning.
The victims had been dead for several days before their bodies were found, according to a preliminary investigation. Police have not said how they died. Officers found them while carrying out a welfare check requested by Miller’s family.
