BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Police say a man and woman were found dead at a Bloomington apartment complex in an apparent murder-suicide.

Bloomington police say officers were called Wednesday night to the apartment, where they found a 21-year-old woman dead with stab wounds and a 20-year-old man dead from an apparent hanging.

Indiana University spokesman said the slain woman was a junior who started at the school this fall, while the man wasn’t an IU student.

The identities and relationship of the two people weren’t immediately released. Police Lt. Brad Seifers tells The Herald-Times (https://bit.ly/1FIyu2g ) that the deaths aren’t related to the case of Indiana University student Joseph Smedley, who was reported missing on Monday.

The deaths occurred in the Stratum Apartments, southeast of the IU campus and near College Park mall.
