    From WSOC:

    Police Investigating 4 Deaths In South Charlotte Apartment


    POSTED: 12:40 pm EDT March 24, 2008
    UPDATED: 12:44 pm EDT March 24, 2008


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Four people were found dead inside a south Charlotte apartment early Monday, police said.

    Authorities have swarmed the Tree Top Apartments complex on High Meadow Road, which is off Archdale Road near Interstate 77. The entire complex has been roped off with crime scene tape.

    Investigators won’t say how the people died. Also, they aren’t releasing the names of the victims and won’t say if they were related.

    Police said they are interviewing the person who called 911 at 5:45 a.m.

    Officers and firefighters in hazardous materials suits have gone into the building. There’s no word on why they have suited up.

    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 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.

    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. :eek:
