INDIANAPOLIS - Police were investigating after two people were found dead on the city’s southeast side Friday afternoon.
A male and female were found in a garage apartment in the 700 block of South Bancroft Street, near Emerson and English avenues, around 1:30 p.m., officials with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.
Police said the male and female were believed to be in their 20s. Authorities said the female had no visible signs of trauma, but the male did.
Police did not suspect foul play, and there was speculation at the scene that the victims died from a drug overdose, but the cause of death would not be known until an autopsy was performed.
UPDATE 6/23/14: The victims have been identified as Gabrielle Beard and Adrian Leveille. The cause of death is still to be determined, pending results of a toxicology test.
Indianapolis Animal Care and Control picked up a small fox from the home. Investigators believed the pair had been dead for more than 24 hours and the fox had started to gnaw on the remains of at least one of the victims.
The young couple had captured the fox in the wild and were trying to tame it and house-break it, neighbors said.
The fox will be taken to a Department of Natural Resources rehab facility and DNR officials will determine the fate of the fox.
Few other details were released.
