The bodies of two women were discovered in a Los Angeles park on Wednesday afternoon, police said.
Police received a call at 2:21 p.m. from a citizen reporting two dead bodies discovered near each other at Ernest E. Debs Regional Park, a large open space in the Montecito Heights neighborhood of northeast Los Angeles, police spokesman Officer Aareon Jefferson said.
Homicide detectives are investigating, Jefferson said.
Police did not provide any additional details on the women or the possible cause of death.
Local TV station KTLA reported that the bodies, which appear to be clothed, were located just a few dozen feet from a trail.

Trump lashes out at US women’s soccer player for refusing to visit the White House
President Donald Trump lashed out at a U.S. women's national soccer team who has publicly criticized him.
Team co-captain Megan Rapinoe, who joined former NFL player Colin Kaepernick's kneeling protest during the National Anthem, strongly denied that she would accept the president's invitation to visit the White House if her squad wins the Women’s World Cup now underway.
“I’m not going to the f*cking White House,” Rapinoe told Eight by Eight Magazine, saying she doubted Trump would risk inviting them. “We’re not gonna be invited. I doubt it.”
Trump has canceled visits by other championship teams, such as this year’s Philadelphia Eagles, after most of the players vowed to decline the invitation.
