UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (KSDK) - Two men were found deceased Thursday morning, and police believe they were victims of foul play.

Officers were called to the 800 block of Pennsylvania for a welfare check after a 59-year-old man did not report to work.

Police found the man and another 77-year-old man dead inside the apartment. They say the men shared a duplex, living in separate units.  They were both found inside the 59-year-old's unit.

Det. Sgt. Fredrick Lemons says both men suffered "several puncture wounds all over the body."

There were no signs of forced entry into either unit, or signs of a struggle.  Detectives aren't sure yet if anything was stolen.  Police are still in the process of contacting the next of kin.

The names of the victims have not been released.

Det. Sgt. Lemons does not believe University City residents should fear for their safety.  They are working a few leads regarding suspects.

Anyone with information regarding the deaths is asked to call the University City Police - Bureau of Investigations at 314-725-2211, ext. 8010, or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.
