KIRKSVILLE, Missouri (AP) -- Seven people were found dead Sunday in a duplex in northeast Missouri, police said.
Police Chief Jim Hughes confirmed the deaths but would not discuss a suspected cause or release details about the victims.
Police were trying to make positive identifications and notify relatives.
Emergency officials went to the home after receiving a 911 call around 2:30 p.m. saying there were a number of unresponsive people and an unusual odor in the duplex.
Foul play had not been ruled out, Hughes said.
