Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives are releasing the names of the victims of the double homicide that occurred last Wednesday in Deerfield Beach.

At approximately 9:40 a.m. on September 25, employees from a doctor’s office went to the home, located in the 400 block of Northeast 39th Street, to check on their co-worker, Jessica Aponte, who did not show up for work Wednesday.

They looked into the house through an open door, saw one of the victims and then called 911.

BSO deputies and fire rescue personnel responded to the scene and confirmed that Aponte, 41, and 24-year-old Luis Alberto Lopez Sanchez were deceased. 

Detectives said Aponte lived at the home alone.
