Police probe two deaths in Norristown

Posted: June 19, 2012

Montgomery County investigators are looking into the deaths of two people found Sunday afternoon in Norristown.

Winchell Espiverne, 23, and Shamara Terella, 26, were lying on their backs in a bedroom Espiverne rented on the second floor of a home in the 1200 block of Arch Street, said District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman. She described the couple as "a tenant and his girlfriend."

The victims, discovered by the landlord, had multiple wounds to their heads and torsos. Autopsies had not been completed as of late Monday.

The slayings, Ferman said, were the first in the municipality since August 2011. — Mari A. Schaefer
