NORTH SIDE (KDKA) – Police are investigating after two bodies were found at a YMCA on the North Side Monday morning.

According to emergency dispatchers, the bodies were found at the Allegheny YMCA in the 600-block of West North Avenue.

The two bodies were found in separate apartments on the third floor of the building.

A neighbor on the floor said the men never bothered anyone. The neighbor also said one became depressed after he lost a relative and started drinking heavily.

“Almost every day after that it was a daily thing. He couldn’t talk straight anymore; he fell on the floor in the bathroom,” Mike Parise said.

The cause of their deaths is currently unknown, but police do not believe either is suspicious.

Police believe both men are in their 40s, but their identities have not been released at this time.

“The Y community is deeply saddened by the tragic, seemingly unrelated, deaths of two of the Allegheny Y’s residents on the Northside,” Pittsburgh YMCA CEO Rig Riggins said in a statement released Monday evening. “The Greater Pittsburgh YMCA has provided single occupancy rooms for adult men since its inception over 159 years ago.”
