The bodies of a man and woman have been found by police inside a unit complex in Victoria Park, in Perth’s inner south east on Easter Sunday.

Detectives were called to the apartment block on Leonard Street at about 4.20pm and discovered one body inside the unit.

It’s not known where the other body was found. 

Police Commissioner Chris Dawson told ABC Radio Perth on Monday their deaths are tragic.

‘It’s less than 24 hours since we found the two deceased, it’s clearly a very suspicious and tragic set of circumstances,’ he said.

‘There is a very big team on this right now… We believe both were subject of homicide.’ 

Commissioner Dawson said police are now on the hunt for those responsible.

‘Until we locate any person, we’ll always obviously remain concerned, but there’s a very big team working on this now,’ he said.  

‘Anyone that’s seen anything in and around Leonard Street [in] Victoria Park over the last 24 hours or so, we just want any information.

‘It doesn’t matter how small you think it might be, whether it’s persons, vehicles, whatever it might be, noises, we’d just like you to make contact with us.’ 

The Homicide Squad is working with local police and forensics officers to investigate the deaths. 

More to come.
