Cops find couple dead in Newark home after child's call for helpPosted: Updated:
? Police say a child's frantic calls to a relative ultimately led to the discovery of her parents' bodies in their Newark home Friday.
According to police, the 6-year-old girl's family member called 911. Police say the girl and a 3-year-old boy were found unharmed inside the home at 63 Willoughby St. around noon. Both children were taken to counselors. Mayor Cory Booker (D-Newark) says the couple was involved in the drug trade and the killings were not random.
Police say there was virtually no blood at the scene, but gave no cause of death. A neighbor says the family had lived in the home less than a year.
