Authorities identify 2 victims in gruesome Peabody killings

The woman was taken to the State Police barracks in Danvers, where she told officers that there had been a crime in the home.

Authorities were reportedly searching for two suspects Sunday after a man and a woman were found brutally murdered inside their MA home.

MA authorities are investigating after the bodies of a man and a woman were discovered inside a home in Peabody.

The investigation is centered on a crime scene at 19 Farm Ave.

Authorities have said that late Saturday, a woman ran out of the home and flagged down a passing auto, which brought her to the State Police barracks.

Sources told CBS Boston the couple were found shot to death, their bodies wrapped in rugs and plastic.


Police said they believe at least two people are responsible for the gruesome killings.

"The crime scene is very hard right now, it's quite messy", said Blodgett.

So far, the medical examiner's office has not been seen at the home.

Monahan said that based on what the woman said, Peabody police responded to the scene at the house on Farm Avenue.

"We have been here a number of different times for all kinds of incidents", Chief Thomas Griffin told reporters. Police said they may be armed. The DA's office said they believe the killer knew the victims.

Hebb is due to be arraigned in Peabody District Court Tuesday morning.
