When Scottsdale, Arizona police entered a luxury apartment on December 8, 2017, they found the bodies of 24-year-old Brock Haman and 25-year-old Veronica Birk. Both had been dead for a while, and evidence at the scene indicated that drugs were to blame.
Veronica Birk’s mother had not seen her daughter for a week and became increasingly worried. Finally, she requested that Scottsdale, Arizona police conduct a welfare check. The police set out to conduct the welfare check at the Cibola Apartment Complex on December 8, 2017. In one of the luxury apartments, they found the dead bodies of Birk, 25, and Brock Haman, 24.
According to the police, Birk and Haman were found in the bathroom. It appeared that they’d both been dead for a while. They also found evidence at the scene that strongly suggests the deaths were drug-related. A medical examiner is determining the exact cause of death.
Brock Haman and Veronica Birk were described as acquaintances, Sergeant Ben Hoster added.
