ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque police are investigating two deaths – one initially deemed a suicide on Tuesday and another after a person was found dead Thursday afternoon.
Police spokesman Gilbert Gallegos said the Thursday incident is considered “suspicious” at this time, while the Tuesday incident was ruled a homicide.
He said police responded around 2 p.m. Thursday to a home in the 5000 block of Glendale NW, a few blocks from Central and Atrisco. Officers found a woman’s body inside the house.
Gallegos said the woman’s position and “state of the scene” indicated “very suspicious circumstances.”
“Homicide detectives are currently conducting interviews and canvassing the area,” he said.
On Tuesday, Gallegos said officers responded to a call reporting a man’s body had been found at 75 Hotel Circle NE, near Lomas and Eubank. He said police found a man with “obvious signs of trauma” and the death was initially classified a suicide.
Gallegos said the Office of the Medical Investigator told detectives the next day that it was ruled a homicide after an autopsy.
