Two Found Dead in Peabody, Massachusetts House at 'Messy' Murder Scene

MA authorities are investigating after the bodies of a man and a woman were discovered inside a home in Peabody.

Authorities said Mark Greenlaw, 37, and Jennifer O'Connor, 39, were dating and thought to have been living together at the Farm Avenue home.

Police are continuing to investigate the crime.

According to sources, a woman ran out of the house Saturday night and flagged down a person who drove her to the State Police barracks to report a crime.

The Essex district attorney's office confirmed to FOX25 Michael Hebb, 45, of Peabody, was taken into custody shortly after noon Monday.

Essex District Attorney Jon Blodgett told reporters on Sunday that X-ray equipment and K-9 units were being brought to the scene.

Police also confirmed Monday morning that they were searching for two suspects in the murder.

"The crime scene is very hard right now, it's quite messy", Blodgett added.

"We have been here a number of different times for all kinds of incidents", Chief Thomas Griffin told reporters.

So far, the medical examiner's office has not been seen at the home. Earlier in the day, Monahan said it was not clear how many victims there were, but that she believed it was more than one.

The home was known to Peabody Police, who said the murders were not a random act.

He's charged with two counts of first degree murder.
