On August 3, 2018, at about 8:08 p.m., officers of the Eureka Police Department (EPD) responded to the 3200 block of D Street for a welfare check call.

Upon arrival, officers tried for several minutes to contact the occupants, but there was no answer. Based on the details of the call, the lack of contact, and observations made at the scene, officers believed exigent circumstances existed and they forced entry into the residence.

A check of the residence revealed two deceased subjects. The scene was secured and detectives were summoned.

This case is being investigated as a homicide, however no suspect(s) are believed to be at large. The identities of the deceased are being withheld pending positive identification and notification of next of kin.

This is an open investigation and it is still in the initial stages. A more detailed press release will be sent out when we are further along in the investigation and it is appropriate.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Senior Detective Cosetti at 707-441-4315.
