MIAMI (WSVN) - Police have a suspect in custody after two women were found dead inside a luxury Miami condominium.
City of Miami Police responded to the area of Northeast 32nd Street and Seventh Avenue at around 9:30 p.m., Tuesday.
“To check on the well-being of two persons that were possibly deceased,” said Miami Police Officer Freddie Cruz. “Once our officers arrived, and they gained entrance to the apartment, it was discovered that there were two females that were stabbed to death.”
The two adult women were found dead upon arrival.
On Wednesday, officials said one suspect was in custody.
“We are not looking for any other suspects. We do believe that this is a case that we can close, and there is nobody else at the current moment that we’re looking for,” said Cruz.
7News cameras captured crime scene trucks parked outside the high-rise.
A developer with the building’s management said the area is normally safe.
“This has always been a very safe building. We do background checks of everybody who comes here,” said developer Claudia Euse.
Neighbors in the community were disturbed by the discovery.
“I am in shock. I don’t even know how to react,” said neighbor Brenda Montelier. “I’m pregnant. I have a baby. My husband works the whole week. I’m by myself at the house. Like I said, it’s very scary.”
“I would love to know what actually happened and why, and how it could’ve been prevented,” added neighbor Kristina.
The victims and suspect have not yet been identified.
Police continue to investigate.
