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.
