    Authorities are still investigating the "messy" scene where a man and a woman were found slain inside a home in Peabody, Massachusetts, according to the Essex County District Attorney's Office.

    Law enforcement has been at the home at 19 Farm Ave. since Saturday night when a resident who lives there flagged down a motorist to ask for help. Police said the motorist took the resident to state police barracks then authorities returned to the home where they discovered the gruesome scene.

    Officials say one body was found in the cellar and another was found in the main part of the house. Jonathan Blodgett, the Essex County District Attorney, says they are waiting to notify family members before identifying the victims. The scene is described as "messy" and an x-ray machine was brought in to help assist with the investigation.

    A medical examiner also arrived at the scene to help determine what kind of trauma the victims underwent.

    Peabody police say they believe all parties knew one another and it was not a random act. Authorities also said they have been called to the home multiple times over the years, but would not specify as to why. Neighbors say the troubles at the home were well-known.

    “It’s actually very sad, but I’m just really not surprised,” said Peabody resident Rachel Hrubes.

    No one is in custody but the district attorney’s office confirms there is an active search for multiple suspects.
