Roanoke Police have released the names of the two men found shot to death in a Day Avenue apartment last week.

One of the men, 54 year old Spencer Jackson Dickason, lived in the apartment.
The other man, 44 year old Odell Hairston, had a Northwest Roanoke address.
A weekend autopsy found both men died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
Police suspect a murder suicide, because the fatal bullets are the same caliber as a gun found at the scene.
They say an additional test could tell them whether either of the men fired the fatal shots.
