VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Police are investigating a double homicide in Virginia Beach after a man and a woman were found dead inside a home Monday evening.
According to police, officers responded to a home in the 100 block of S. Boggs Avenue around 6:20 p.m. Monday. 10 On Your Side since uncovered it was actually a unit in the Thalia Garden Apartment and Townhomes.
When police arrived at the scene, they found a man and woman with gunshot wounds. Both were pronounced dead.
The man has been identified as 23-year-old Talon Rodgers. The woman is 23-year-old Alisa Wash. Both are residents of Virginia Beach. Police confirmed Rodgers and Wash were married.
At this time, police say the incident does not appear to be domestic-related.
Zach Rabe lives across the hall from the apartment where Rodgers and Wash lived. He said the couple just married in the last few weeks and lived in the apartment for roughly two years.
“Last Wednesday, I heard what sounded like two bangs and then a door slam,” Rabe said. “It didn’t seem like gunshots though.”
Rabe said he gave it no thought until Monday evening when a friend of the couple came looking for them.
“He said the door was unlocked and he walked in and found the bodies,” Rabe said. “It really has me shook up.”
A tribute to the couple was posted on the Reckless Rejects MC Facebook page, a local motorcycle group.
“Until we meet again my amazing brother Talon Rodgers aka Doughboi and my wonderful sister Alisa Rodgers aka EZ Mac. I love you both very much. Ride in Heaven….,” the post read.
Michael Thornton grew up with Talon in York County. He said the two were close in high school before Thornton joined the Army.
“Took me as a shock because that’s just not what I thought would have happened to Talon,” Thornton said.
