Police: 2 found dead in apartment

Neighbors grew concerned after not seeing couple

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - Two people believed to be visiting from Canada were found dead in an apartment in Hallandale Beach Thursday night, according to police.

The victims were found at the Venetian Park apartment complex at 926 Northeast 25th Avenue.

Police said the bodies were discovered by the couple's neighbors. Residents told detectives they hadn't seen the couple and grew concerned. That's when they used the spare to key to enter the couple's apartment.
