Police are investigating the deaths of two adults found in an Anchorage home Saturday night as a homicide but are not looking for any suspects, according to the Anchorage Police Department.

Police responded to a home in the 1100 block of East 66th Avenue, off the Old Seward Highway south of Dowling Road, at 6:12 p.m. Saturday, according to the alert.

Police said officers found the two adults dead inside the home.

“Homicide detectives and the crime scene team will be on location for quite some time processing the scene,” police said. “There have been no arrests at this time and no further details are being released.”

Police at the scene declined to release information about how the two died, their genders and whether they lived in the home, potential suspects or whether anyone else was inside the residence.

“There aren’t any safety concerns right now for the public,” Sgt. Jason Allen said.

In an update, police said they believe they have contacted all people involved and are not looking for anyone at this time.

Police said they will release the identities of the deceased once next of kin have been notified.

Police asked anyone with information about the deaths of the two adults to call dispatch at 311 (option 1). To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP or anchoragecrimestoppers.com.
