The Big Bloody: Drug Chase Uncovers Two Dead Bodies


Police uncovered two victims of an apparent murder-suicide Tuesday while chasing drug dealers through a north city neighborhood.

Undercover officers pursued a group of six alleged drug dealers into an apartment building in the 4700 block of Newberry Terrace last night at approximately 8:15 p.m. Once inside the four-family flat, the police entered an open doorway only to find the bodies of a man and woman dead from what authorities believe was a murder-suicide.

Police later apphrended the suspected drug dealers in a nearby apartment. The names of the deceased have not been made public.
