Two Dead Bodies Discovered Inside Chatsworth Home
Two bodies were found in a Chatsworth home on Monday morning by LAPD officers.
LAPD Officer Drake Madison told LAist that the department received a radio call about the situation just after 7 a.m. Monday. The bodies were discovered inside a residence on the 10400 block of Canoga Avenue in Chatsworth. Madison did not have any further information about how the bodies were discovered or what may have caused the deaths. "I know there's two dead bodies in there and the investigation is ongoing," he said. "It's a fluid situation."
The deceased were a male and a female, both believed to be around 50 years old.
