When the Boston area Police arrived at the Peabody, Massachusetts home, they uncovered a scene so grisly and bloody, it was almost impossible to tell just how many victims had died. However, using X-ray equipment, police have managed to establish that the Crime Scene contained the bodies of a man and woman, who were both found dead on Saturday night.

While the names of the victims have not yet been released, the victims were reportedly shot to death and wrapped in plastic and rugs. However, according to some news outlets, police reportedly found multiple body parts strewn around what they termed a “messy” crime scene at the house at 19 Farm Ave.

in Peabody.

According to a report by CBS, the male and female victims are believed to have been a couple, but at the time, Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said the crime scene was so difficult and gruesomely messy, they were doing their best to sift through it.

Police alerted by a woman running from the 'messy' crime scene

According to Blodgett, police were alerted by a woman who ran from the home, flagging down a driver and asking him to take her to the police. According to police, they believe the double homicides are no random act and they said the home was well known to authorities. As reported by the Boston Globe, Blodgett said there had been a number of occasions in the past where police were called to the home for various incidents and problems.

At least two suspects sought in the “messy” double homicide

Police are now actively seeking suspects in the crime and believe there are at least two people involved.

Police spokeswoman, Carrie Kimball Monahan said the police had requested the X-ray equipment from the state Fire Marshal’s office to make the necessary body count and said later on Sunday that the victims have been identified, but no names are being released pending notification of the families. No mention was made at the time of the cause of death and Monahan said that as yet, no arrests have been made and no suspects identified.
