    Maybe a Meth lab explosion?

    That's a possibility, teonspaleprincess. Or maybe it hadn't exploded yet and they died from fumes? I don't have a clue about home meth labs, just guessing!

    Meth lab was my first guess when I read that the authorities were in hazardous materials suits.

    I will be anxious to hear about this one.

    I did hear the police say that they had been to that very apartment several times before so it does sound drug related. (The complex was evidently a haven for drugs and illegal activity.)

    A neighborhood person said that people were coming in and out of that apartment constantly, too. He said there was always girls around and guys traipsing around. It rather sounded like maybe he was hinting at a prostitution type situation.

    The first link above has been updated:
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Homicide detectives were not releasing key details late Monday night about a quadruple homicide.

    Four people were found dead at the Tree Top apartments in south Charlotte Monday. Police believe they were shot to death, but, officers did not release their names or relationship, information about suspects, or officers' thoughts on possible motives.

    (probably still drug related though, eh?) How sad.

    Here's a link to video of the area and an SUV being towed. They sure stayed on that SUV shot a long time! The area isn't very fancy, IMO.

    Ah the Queen City. Nothing says the start of spring like a quadruple homicide. Guess they were shot and when the cops went in they found a meth lab or evidence that one had been there. I have not followed this on the news at all. One can get a bit overloaded reading about the crime around here.

    This crime is still unsolved but LE is looking at a POI.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
