GLENDALE (CBSLA) —Police say the deaths of two men in their 50s found at two different locations in Glendale is being investigated as a possible murder-suicide.
A disturbing 911 call brought officers to a townhouse at the Northwoods Village complex at Ramsdell Avenue and Northwoods Lane, off the 210 Freeway, at about 3:30 a.m. Inside the unlocked townhouse, they found a man in his 50s. He was declared dead on the scene, but police did not give details on how he died, or the details of the 911 call.
About 45 minutes later and about six miles away, a man’s body was found on the westbound 134 Freeway just after Harvey Drive. Police say the man, also in his 50s, had jumped to his death from the 2 Freeway transition to the 134 Freeway. His truck was found nearby.
Police have not released the identities of the men, nor will they confirm whether they are related. But residents at the complex say the two men who lived in unit 56 — where police responded Wednesday morning — were brothers who had been living there together.
“I’m shocked. Absolutely shocked. I couldn’t sleep all night,” neighbor Sophie Lafferty said.
“They’ve been wonderful neighbors,” Lafferty said. “They would watch over my place, and I would drop off food.
The men had recently lost other family members, including a sister to cancer, according the complex’s manager.
