The Seaside Police Department with assistance from the Clatsop County Major Crime Team is investigating the deaths of a male and female found inside a residence in the 1300 block of 10th Avenue.
At 9:20 a.m., the Seaside Police Department was asked by an employer to do a welfare check at the residence of this investigation when an employee failed to show up for work. The officer found the front door locked, no signs of any forced entry or suspicious circumstances. They employer was informed and was going to try to check with the wife.
At 2:59 p.m. Seaside Volunteer Fire Department responded to this address for a report of an unresponsive person. When fire personnel arrived they were told of two dead bodies inside the residence and notified police who were already responding.
When officers arrived, they discovered a male and female inside the residence who had been deceased for some time. After a search of the residence for any additional victims, they secured the residence notifying detectives. Detectives are at this time unable to positively identify both victims. They both appear to be in their 50’s.
The Seaside Police along with the Clatsop County Major Crime are continuing their investigation. They are preparing a Search Warrant for the residence and awaiting the Oregon State Police Crime Lab to assist in processing the scene. The Crime Lab is expected to arrive sometime Saturday morning.
Detectives have identified two vehicles that may appear to be connected to the scene. The vehicles are a 2009 purple Scion TC with Oregon License 558EBE and a gold Toyota Camry with a temporary sticker. Anyone observing either of these vehicles is asked to contact their local police department or call Seaside Police.
Seaside Police will be holding a Press Conference at 11:00 a.m. Saturday May 5th at the Seaside Police Department to provide any updated information on the case.
