Posted: Updated:

TEMPE -- Police are awaiting a search warrant that will allow them back inside a Tempe apartment where the bodies of two men were discovered.

Investigators spent much of the night and early morning hours on the scene at Mill Avenue and Broadway Road. The bodies were found between 6:30 and 7:00 Thursday night.

Somebody who knew the two men became concerned, having not seen them for several days. That person notified the Tempe Police Department.

Officers went out to the apartment for a welfare check and found the two Native America men. Investigators don't have much to go on at this point.

While police said they are not actively looking for a suspect at this point, they are still trying to piece together just what happened.

"It's too early to determine what exactly occurred, if there was any altercation or things of that nature," said Lt. Scott Smith of the Tempe Police Department.

Investigators have not said how the men died.

Officers on the scene said there was no sign of forced entry into the apartment, but there were indications of struggle.

Investigators are talking to neighbors, as well as people who knew the two men.
