In Simi Valley, California, a man who returned home after a day’s work came face to face with a macabre scene.
On entering his home, the man found bloodstains on the floor as well as the lifeless body of a woman. He immediately called for Police assistance, and when the Police carried out a search, they found another lifeless body as well as a dead dog.
Apart from these finds, a threat had been written on one of the walls of the house to the effect that there was a hidden explosive device inside.
It is not known as yet whether there was any relationship between the home owner and the two dead persons.
The surrounding area was evacuated to ensure the safety of neighbours.
No bomb was found, despite extensive searches. Police investigations are ongoing.
