Philly police officer and friend found dead inside home


A female Philadelphia Police officer and her male acquaintance were found dead in a Port Richmond home Monday afternoon, leaving authorities with several questions in need of answers.

The 36-year-old officer was off duty when she was found dead alongside her 42-year-old friend, whom she knew for some time. Police say there were no obvious signs of trauma on the bodies.

“It’s shocking. It’s a big surprise, just awful,” said neighbor Richard Yuill. “It’s terrible to hear of anyone going, but she was just a really nice person.”

According to ABC6, the 14-year police veteran did not show up for work, prompting officers to go check on her.

“We usually don’t have stuff like this going on around here, so something like that its a bit of a shock,” said neighbor Timothy Callahan. “I just want to know what happened.”

Police are not revealing the identity of the individuals and postmortem investigations will be conducted.
