Two men were found dead inside an apartment building in East Williamsburg Monday.
Police tell News 12 the two men were roommates and that there were no signs that anyone had forced their way into the apartment.
Police were called to the fifth-floor apartment at the Cooper Park Houses around 11:30 a.m. for a wellness check. Arriving officers say they found a 49-year-old man and a 61-year-old man dead inside the apartment.
Police tell News 12 the 61-year-old had trauma to his head and appeared to have been dead for several days. Police say the trauma could have been from a fall.
The 49-year-old did not have any trauma from what investigators could tell, and say there was drug paraphernalia near him.
The medical examiner will determine what caused both of their deaths.
A police source tells News 12 at this point they’re not searching for any suspects because there were no signs of forced entry.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
