Police have identified the two women found dead in a southeast Colorado Springs home earlier this week.

The bodies of 33-year-old Jacquline Cline and 23-year-old Victoria Loftis were found early Tuesday morning. Officers found their bodies while investigating a 911 call they received just before 3 a.m.

We listened to the dispatch recordings and found out a woman called police from a nearby gas station, less than a mile from the home. But it sounded like she took off before police got there.

"RP’s currently calling from the Loaf ‘N Jug nearby but says a door was kicked in at this address. RP [reporting party] is upset, saying that females possibly DOA in a bedroom,” the dispatcher said in the recording.

Police went to the home and found two women dead inside. No one else was there.

"Officers from the Sand Creek division received a call of an individual who was potentially deceased in the 3500 block of Mosswood Lane. Upon arrival to the residence, officers were able to determine that no one else seemed to be present and made entry into the residence," CSPD Lt. Howard Black told 11 News.

Officers discovered the bodies of two women with "traumatic" injuries, Black said.

"Two bodies in a bedroom,” said an officer in the dispatch recordings. "You can start medical at this point. It appears to be two gunshot wounds."

An autopsy confirmed the women were shot to death.

We talked with a family friend of one of the victims.

"It was her and a friend of hers, I guess, that was tied up and I guess executed. I don't know, that's what I was told,” said David Bean.

He said he was shocked to hear what happened.

"It really affects you, it really does because like I said she was a sweet girl and there's no need for this to go down this way you know what I'm saying, there's always a way out of anything,” he added.

El Paso County animal law enforcement responded shortly before 5 a.m. to retrieve a dog found at the scene.

CSPD's Violent Crimes Unit is now investigating. According to Black, detectives are still unclear if the women lived in the home or who made the original 911 call.

Police have not released any information about suspects. We’ll update you when we learn more.

Black said the deaths appear to be "totally unrelated" to a

, which happened a short time before the 911 call.
