Man, Wife Die After Bloody Knife Battle

"The scene looked like a Quentin Tarantino movie..."


A husband and wife were found dead in their Northeast Philadelphia home Saturday night after what police suspect may have been a bloody knife battle between the two, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

"The scene looked like a Quentin Tarantino movie," a source told the paper.

The bodies of 40-year-old Robert Diandrea and his 39-year-old wife Sophia were found inside 121 Greycourt Road in the Bustleton section of the city around 5:30pm.

Both victims were stabbed multiple times, according to police. Investigators are trying to decide now if this is a case of murder-suicide of if each person killed the other. Either way, police do not suspect that anyone else was involved.

Robert worked for the city's Water Department and Sophia was a fifth-grade teacher, according to the paper. They had three sons. Police were called after the two youngest, ages 13 and 10, went to a neighbor's house on Saturday when they coudn't get inside their house and then spotted blood on one of the doors.
