2 Bodies Found in Fayetteville Apartment

Posted July 3, 2007

— Two bodies were found inside a Fayetteville apartment Tuesday morning, but police were releasing few details of their investigation.

Police were called to Building 72 of the Cambridge Arms Apartments off McPherson Church Road and Morganton Road at about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday after a neighbor reported that all of the windows of the apartment were open.

An officer entered the apartment and found the bodies, police said.

Police said they were treating the case as a suspicious deaths investigation, but details as to where the bodies were found in the apartment, the cause of death or how long the bodies might have been inside weren't released.

The two victims haven't been identified.

A neighbor described the residents of the apartment as a man and woman in their 20s.

"My manager called me ... and notified me that something had happened, that she hasn't been showing up for work," said Lisa Howard, who worked with the woman. "(He) said they found them both in the apartment."

    ... the killer wanted his victims' bodies to be found, so he left the windows open...

    who ever the victims are, their families should accept my sympathy...

    If the windows were open in my neighbor's house, it wouldn't make me think to call the police, I think there is more to the story.

    Sound like carbon monide or something why else would all the widows be open and police are not calling it a murder investigation but a death investigation so that should tell you it wasnt murder

    The two victims haven't been identified.....Nifong and Mangum had a fight maybe?

    I can't believe that it's advertised CNN would air the Jenna story at eight tonight. That darn Libby took it over. It seems like murder is just becoming another day in the life of thugs anymore. It seems like folks wake up and say who do we kill today. I am sorry for the family and will be glad when we learn a little more if this is foul play or what.

    Cambridge Arms has been in the news for similar events for as long as I can remember. You can't blame the apartments themselves. It's just a large complex in a place with a lot of young people away from parents.
