2 women found shot to death in St. Louis duplex, 2 children found inside unharmed


ST. LOUIS — The bodies of two women and two unharmed children have been found in a St. Louis duplex.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ( ) reports that a man made the discovery Thursday morning while attempting to drop off a child with one of the victims, 25-year-old Korie Hodges. Police identified the second victim as 22-year-old Keerica Bolden, who lives in unincorporated St. Louis County near Florissant.

St. Louis Police Lt. John Green says he believes the two children, 2 and 5, were inside the home at the time of the slayings. He declined to say what they witnessed or where they were found in the home.

The man who discovered the bodies was related to Hodges. He didn't know the children, so authorities believe they are connected to Bolden.
