Death of tenant in rental house
I've been a LL for many years and this morning I received that dreaded 4am call; "come to your property, there has been a murder" said a neighbor over the phone.
Well it turned out not to be a murder but an apparent drug overdose by the young lady of the house. Her boyfriend also appeared to be drugged up according to the police. He was taken to the hospital but he wasn't be arrested.
The young woman in her late 20's leaves behind 4 young kids, what a shame. DCF came to take the kids as the boyfriend was hospitalized and there were no in-state relatives.
I was very surprised as this is/was a very nice couple with good jobs living in one of our nicer single family homes.
What a mess.
I expect this to be a dicey situation, haven't had to deal with this before as a LL.
Any words of wisdom by those who have been there would be appreciated.
