CLEVELAND, Ohio – A Cleveland landlord discovered two dead tenants in an apartment building he owns on the city’s East Side.

Tenants at the 400 block of Cleveland Road reached out to their landlord complaining of a foul odor from the downstairs apartment. When police arrived at the apartment on about 11:15 a.m. Friday, they discovered two dead bodies in separate beds Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said.

Authorities could not identify one of the bodies due to advanced decomposition, Ciaccia said. The other belonged to a 37-year-old man whose identity was not released by Monday by police.

The landlord told police that the tenants are brothers and live together. He also told police that no one heard from the tenants in days, Ciaccia said.

Police do not know how long the bodies were in the apartment before their neighbors placed the call to their landlord. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of both deaths.
