The bodies of two as-yet-unidentified victims were found dead Saturday night/early Sunday on the 3100 block of Coolidge Avenue in Oakland, in burning second-floor apartment above an acupuncture clinic. Investigators are now saying the victims were assaulted prior to the fire -- and possibly killed before the blaze was set. Witnesses report seeing someone flee the building carrying gas cans or incendiary devices.

Oakland police are seeking information about the fire or the victims which can be made at [email protected].
