PHOENIX — Police are investigating the killings of a married couple in
their north Phoenix home.
Officers reported finding the bodies of 81-year-old William Singer and
64-year-old Barbara Singer on Wednesday afternoon.
Police spokesman Sgt. Steve Martos said Thursday that detectives determined
trauma and evidence at the scene indicates the deaths are a double homicide.
Martos says officers went to the house to check on the couple’s welfare after a
caretaker got no answer at the door. The home is in a neighborhood near Central
Avenue and Bell Road
Police say the couple reportedly was last seen about a week ago.
They say Singer and his wife had been married for more than 30 years, but
didn’t have any children together.
