(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington Police have released the names of those involved in the murder/suicide that happened Wednesday at Stratum Apartments.

According to Bloomington Lieutenant Brad Seifers, officers were called to the apartments in the 3100 block of Goodnight Way after a report of a male and female being found in the common area of one of the apartment buildings.

When officers arrived they found 20-year-old Chuanlin Xiao dead from an apparent suicide by hanging. Near the male, officers discovered the body of a 21-year-old Yaolin Wang. Police say she died from apparent stab wounds.

Wang lived in the apartment building. Xiao lived in Washington State.

"Based on preliminary investigation detectives believe Yaolin was killed by Xiao who then took his own life," Seifers wrote in a press release.

Seifers says the two had been in a relationship for approximately 6 months and they had lived together at the apartment on Goodnight Way for approximately a month.
