Police haven't yet identified the victims, Giodano says, and likewise have no idea how or why they died.

Officers arrived at the home just after 8:15 this morning and found the house's window's covered in flies.

Firefighters forced their way inside, where the bodies were discovered.

Police are asking anyone with information about the dead to call 305-471-TIPS.
