Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Police are investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide after two people were found dead inside a Valley home.

Officers responded to 6901 E. Chauncey Lane on Wednesday afternoon after a concerned family member contacted police.

No one answered the door when police arrived, and officers went on to discover that the door had been blocked from the inside.

After entering the residence, police found a deceased 21-year-old female who had several wounds that were consistent with a stabbing.

Officers also found a dead 56-year-old male who had suffered injuries consistent with a suicide.

Police found a note at the scene, and said it appears as if the couple had experienced arrests for domestic violence over the past few years.
