KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City police are investigating after finding two bodies in a house on the city`s East side at 39th and Chestnut.

Police were called to the area just before 5:30 p.m., and after 9 p.m., they still have several blocks of Chestnut taped off.

Officers were initially dispatched to the crime scene on an unknown medical call. When cops arrived - they found two men dead inside a house.

The Jackson County medical examiner is still working to determine their cause of death. On Friday, Kari Thompson, Kansas City Police spokesperson, said the deaths were ruled a double homicide.

Police sources tell FOX 4 that a 13-year-old girl arrived home to find her father dead on the couch covered in blood. It was soon discovered that another man - whose relation to the family is unknown - was also dead inside.

The homicide squad soon reported to the scene - and FOX 4 is told the teen girl was later released to the custody of other family members.

"I couldn’t even imagine what her and her family is going through. Just to come home and see somebody that you’re used to seeing living and happy and smiling, just gone like that for no reason. It’s sad. It really is," neighbor Keshayla Bunch said.

The two suspicious deaths have rattled the neighborhood.

“It`s scary. Because I have a child myself and it`s like when is it going to end?” Bunch said.

“Because I don`t want my son growing up in this type of neighborhood where he has to be worried about whether or not if he has to come home and his mother is going to be dead or somebody in his family is going to live or not. And it`s just a scary thought, period.”

Police have yet to explain what led to this - or whether they`re looking for any suspects. FOX 4 will keep you updated with the latest developments as we learn more.
