3 found dead in apartment complex in apparent murder-suicide

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Memphis Police Department confirmed three people were found dead at an apartment complex near Mt. Moriah and Mendenhall roads.

According to police, a man and two women were found during a welfare check around 1:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon at Eden at Watersedge.

Malvin Abbott works near the complex.

"We were a little horrified you know. Bad things happen every day," said Abbott. "This was kind of out there. Wasn't anything anyone was expecting to get off work especially on a Thursday and find out."

It is not clear when the victims, whose names and ages are not known at this time, actually died.

If police determine the incident to be a murder-suicide, it will be the second to occur in Memphis in one week. On Monday night, police found the body of 83-year-old Reginald Maclin and his 83-year-old wife, Thelma, in their home on West Frank Avenue.

Investigators say Maclin shot his wife then himself.
