1st and Richmond

Does anyone know what is going on at the apartments on the corner? I hear there is police tape there.

1st and Richmond

Nothing has been released yet as far as I know but as the op indicated the area is taped off. One forensic van and three cruisers on site. Hopefully it isn't as serious as the response might indicate. Someone in the area tells me police have been coming and going all day. Will add a couple pictures shortly, if anyone comes across information that they feel we should know please post.

can't be a fall

they wouldn't put crime tape up for just a fall.... unless they died and it is under investigation.  
When I drove by on my way back to work, there was a forensic member in their white plastic jumpsuits sorting through things in the back porch area.

Apartment block

  
vergel parenteau said "i live there...someone fell down the stairs or something "

Can you tell us anything else about the state of your apartment block right now/this afternoon?  
 
Are you or others in the building allowed to come and go as you please right now (or this afternoon)?  
 
Can you describe anything strange that you yourself might have heard or seen over the past 24 hours?  
 
How often (if ever) in the past have you noticed there being a police response to the area?

the masks may be because of the finger printing dust, the particles in it can cause cancer

Bodies?

Is it just me or have there been more dead bodies found then normal recently? It's not just that but they are found outside. I've personally heard of at least 3 seperate bodies found in the last 2 months. We don't really seem to be getting the causes of death either, we're told no apparent foul play or cause of death unknown. What's going on?
