Bodies found at Florida home had been there for weeks, medical examiner says

Three bodies found at an upscale, gated community in Florida had been there for weeks without anyone noticing, a medical examiner says.

The bodies – which were not identified – were discovered on Saturday in Orlando after a property manager went to check on three residents that he had not heard from in a while, WOFL reports.

Upon arrival at the home, located in the golf course community of Eagle Creek, the manager smelled a foul odor and alerted authorities.

Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Capt. Angelo Nieves said the incident is being treated as a murder-suicide. Authorities discovered the decomposing bodies a 34-year-old woman, a 50-year-old man and a child, WOFL reports.

The state medical examiner’s office is in the process of identifying the remains, but determined that the people had been dead for about three weeks, WFTV reports.
