Decomposing bodies of a man and a woman were discovered in a Brooklyn apartment, leading to an ongoing investigation by the police.
The authorities were alerted to the scene after receiving a call about a foul odor emanating from the residence on Quentin Road.
The bodies, identified as a 76-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man, were found in an advanced state of decomposition.
Medical examiners will conduct further analysis to determine the cause of death.
The identities of the deceased individuals are being withheld pending notification of their family members.
In other news, a recently released report sheds light on the FBI’s decision to initiate a full investigation into the alleged collusion between Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.
The 306-page report, issued by special counsel John Durham, criticizes the FBI for launching the investigation based on insufficient evidence and an over-reliance on tips provided by Trump’s political opponent.
Durham’s investigation, which lasted nearly four years, did not result in any indictments.
Supporters of the former president argue that the report indicates the FBI went too far, while critics of Trump believe it presents a misleading portrayal of the agency’s activities during that time.
The report accuses the FBI of hastily conducting the Trump-Russia probe and treating it differently from other investigations, including those involving Trump’s Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
Durham found that neither U.S.
law enforcement nor the intelligence community possessed any actual evidence of collusion when the investigation was launched.
These findings contradict a previous major report by the Justice Department’s Inspector General in 2019, which concluded that the FBI had sufficient evidence to open the probe.
However, that investigation also determined that the FBI was not influenced by political bias, though it did reveal serious performance failures within the bureau regarding information sourcing.
The FBI responded to Durham’s report by stating that they had already implemented dozens of corrective actions, which have been in place for some time.
Ultimately, Durham’s four-year, $6.5 million probe failed to substantiate claims of a deep state conspiracy or improper targeting of Trump.
Only two acquittals and one guilty plea from a mid-level figure resulted from the prosecutions initiated by the investigation.
This outcome starkly contrasts with the earlier investigation, which led to indictments against 34 individuals and seven guilty pleas.
Further details regarding the investigation into the deaths of the family members in Brooklyn and any developments in the Trump-Russia probe are expected to unfold as the authorities continue their inquiries.
