TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

The Tampa Police Department's Homicide Unit is investigating two suspicious deaths at a home in north Tampa.

A neighbor called 911 Wednesday night around 9:30 p.m.  When officers arrived, they found Chelsea Sizemore, 21, and Eric Salabirria, 28, dead inside the house at 10013 N 24th St.

Chelsea Sizemore is a daughter of Dave Flash Morgan, a Tampa Bay radio personality, according to his Facebook page.

Crime scene technicians spent several hours processing the scene Thursday morning.

Lt. Randy Peters says both Sizemore and Salabirria died from upper body trauma.  When asked if neighbors should be concerned about any possible suspects, he said, "based on the information we have right now, they have nothing to worry about."

Sizemore's 2-year-old daughter lives at the home with the couple. The child was inside the home at the time; a neighbor took her before police arrived, police said.  She's now safe with a relative.
