2 bodies found in Moncton apartment identified
Names of two local men, aged 29 and 36, and causes of death not yet released
The bodies of two men discovered in a Moncton apartment over the weekend have been identified.
The causes of death are still under investigation and foul play has not been ruled out, said Farrah.
Autopsies were performed on Monday and investigators are awaiting the results, she said.
The men were found dead in an apartment on MacAleese Lane on Sunday at about 9:30 a.m.
RCMP officers went to the apartment looking for the 29-year-old man, who had been reported missing on Nov. 7, and was known to visit there, said Farrah.
"When the officers knocked at the door, there was no answer. They noticed an odour coming from inside the apartment and believed something was wrong. After gaining entry into the apartment, they discovered the two men deceased inside," she said.
Codiac Regional RCMP major crime investigators and forensic identification experts were called to the scene to assist with the investigation.
