UPDATE: Police say an adult woman and young man were found inside a North End home this afternoon.
No information on the victims’ identities or cause of death were immediately available.
The bodies were found about 2 p.m. after one of the woman’s co-workers called police and asked them to check on her because she hadn’t shown up for work for a few days.
“Officers went inside and located the two bodies,” police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.
Police said the woman is in her mid-50s and the man is 18-20.
Neighbors said the woman lived alone and was often seen gardening in front of the well-kept gray home. Her son sometimes came to mow the grass.
Fulghum said it is too soon to discuss possible relationships between the victims or what could have happened.
“We have to figure out what’s going on,” he said.
Tacoma police detectives have launched an investigation into the deaths of two people at a home in North End.
Investigators were looking into the circumstances of the deaths at North 30th and Proctor streets.
“What the circumstances are we don’t know yet,” Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said this afternoon.
We’ll update this post when more information becomes available.
