Two sisters died Wednesday evening from stab wounds in an apparent murder-suicide in San Francisco, authorities said.
The tragedy happened about 5.25 p.m. at Tenderloin Family housing located at 201 Turk street, according to the spokesman from the San Francisco Police Department.
A building manager reported to police that he unlocked the doors of an apartment on the sixth floor of the building and found two women of the age of 51 and 56.
Two of them got lethal wounds.
Medics examined the victims and women were pronounced dead at the scene.
It is known that victims were sisters. They were living together in the apartment, where their bodies were found.
The investigation also revealed their identity. The woman named Julie Nhan was identified as 51 years old.
The second woman named as Phung Nhan is 56 accordingly.
This information was provided by the medical examiner of San Francisco.
Police believe that nobody else was living in the apartment with them.
The investigation of the case is still going on.
The spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department, Michael Andraychak, said he doesn’t think he has ever seen too many suicides by a cutting instrument.
The incident is being investigated as a murder-suicide and there are no outstanding suspects.
