UPDATE: The suspect in Tuesday's double homicide case in Post Falls is Angel Albertico Morales-Larranaga, 24. He is believed to have been living with the victims at the time of the alleged murders. Police believe he acted alone during the alleged incident. He is being held at the Kootenai County Jail. Two other children who live in the home are safe and have been placed into state custody.

POST FALLS - The bodies of a young girl and a woman in her 20s were discovered by investigators at the Tullamore Commons apartment complex in Post Falls Tuesday.

"The suspect showed up at the home of a family friend's house on 15th Street and talked to them about it," Haug said. "That's when she (the family friend) called us."Post Falls Police Department Chief Scot Haug confirmed that his department was treating the discovery of the bodies as a double homicide and added that a male, also in his 20s, was in custody.

The suspect allegedly told the family friend he had strangled his wife and young daughter, a press release from the department states. The woman contacted police at 11:30 a.m. and told them that the man was leaving her home.

Police later arrested the man in his vehicle near Spokane Street and Poleline Avenue. His name had not been released as of Tuesday night.

When detectives entered Unit 211 of Building B at the apartment complex, with a pink tricycle and princess-themed playset on the patio, they discovered the two bodies and then left the scene.

"We won't know for sure what happened until the scene is processed," Haug told The Press Tuesday afternoon. "We are still waiting on search warrants for the apartment and the car the suspect was arrested in. With a case like this it makes sense to cross all the t's and dot the i's. You don't want to have anything go awry."

Haug added that there were noticeable signs of trauma on both of the bodies and a "young couple" had been living in the apartment.

Next of kin had not been notified of the deaths on Tuesday afternoon and Haug said his department would release the names of the victims as soon as they become available.

    Angel Morales - Larranaga is an illegal alien/ undocumented alien from Mexico. The fabric of North Idaho is changing, GET READY. Massage Parlors, street sales of drugs, non- English speaking children in public schools absorbing a vast majority of teacher time. I see more undocumented aliens everyday here in N Idaho. I promise you, they will change a community. At first subtle, and then your council meetings will be in Spanish and they will demand that the laws be changed to accommodate them. I promise.

    Credible and reliable sources state that the suspect is an undocumented/illegal alien from Mexico. North Idaho is a changing. Massage Parlors, recent influx of illegal aliens, non-English speaking students enrolled in school (teachers spending 90% of their time to teach 10% of the students). This is just a sample of the change in quality of life that Americans who live in N. Idaho can expect. Get Ready, it's coming.
