Two bodies found at Circus Circus hotel in Las Vegas

- Two bodies have reportedly been found in a Las Vegas hotel, according to KVVU FOX5

Las Vegas Metro police told KVVU the bodies were found at the Circus Circus Las Vegas Friday afternoon.

A representative from the Las Vegas police said the deceased, a husband and wife, were found after they missed a scheduled tour of the Grand Canyon.

The two were apparently with a tour group from Los Angeles.

Police initially said the incident appeared to be a homicide but left open the possibility it was a murder, suicide. They said there does not appear to be a threat to others. 

Police said a witness reported yelling, possibly arguing, coming from the area of couple's hotel room around 2 a.m. Friday.

The hotel's parent company, MGM Resorts International, released the following statement:
