Early Monday, tenants of the luxurious 20 Lambourne apartment complex in Towson knew that police cars had arrived outside in numbers, but no one appeared to know why.

"I had no idea,” said Kaitlyn Elinsky, “There's no commotion.  Nobody's running around."

"Nobody wanted to talk at first, and then it was just, 'There's two bodies inside',” added Justin Devlin, “Now we're trying to find out what's really going on."
Police say a maintenance worker called 911 after entering a fifth-floor apartment and making a gruesome discovery.

"We have identified there are two adult males inside suffering trauma to their bodies,” said Cpl. Shawn Vinson of the Baltimore County Police Department, “Right now, we're waiting for the medical examiner to arrive to examine the bodies and also to conduct an autopsy.  So hopefully we'll have more information at this point.  Right now, we're not sure what we have."
In fact, early on in the investigation, police still hadn't determined who rented the apartment, who's name was on the lease, and whether the victims even lived in the building.
No one reported hearing gunshots or people arguing in the unit.

"I slept well and I usually wake up to noise,” said Devlin, “I didn't hear anything that would wake the average person up."
It's a point, which leaves many tenants still wondering whether they should be concerned for their own safety.

"I have always felt very safe, but now I'm questioning it,” said Elinsky, “I just don't... after I find out what happened I'll feel safe, maybe.  I just kind of want to call my mom right now."

Police say the maintenance worker who discovered the bodies had entered that unit to perform his regular duties.
If you have any information, which could help in this case, you're asked to call the Baltimore County Police Department.
