Selbyville – Delaware State Police Homicide detectives are conducting a death investigation after a male and female were found deceased in the parking lot in the rear of the Bayview Estates community clubhouse.
At approximately 5:50 a.m. today troopers responded to the clubhouse on Sea Gull Road after receiving a report of two people lying on the ground in the rear parking lot. Troopers arrived to find an unresponsive male and female lying near two vehicles. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
