Police are continuing to investigate the double homicide of Prince George’s County couple who were found dead inside the gated community where they lived Wednesday night.
Authorities report at some point this week, someone broke into the home on the 14500 block of Turner Wotten Parkway in Upper Marlboro and fatally shot 36-year-old Unis Baah and her 40-year-old boyfriend Seth Aidoo.
On Saturday night, Baah’s cousins, Susan Dixon and Abigail Ellis, attended a birthday party in the home. They said their cousin Unis and her boyfriend were there.
“The last time I spoke to my cousin was Monday… she calls you right back,” Dixon said. “I’m still stunned,” she said. “Like I’m dreaming, I don’t think it’s real.”
The victim’s relatives are now overcome with pain and anguish, as detectives told them their cousin, who was three months pregnant with her second child, was found shot to death along with her live-in boyfriend just days after celebrating his 40th birthday.
Police report there is evidence of forced entry in the rear of the house. A bullet pierced one of the walls in the couple’s home and broke through a neighbor’s window. The damage in the neighbor’s home wasn’t noticed until this morning, but now it’s a part of the crime scene.
One neighbor who declined to be on camera told ABC 7/NewsChannel 8 reporter John Gonzalez she heard what sounded like a gunshot Monday night. At the time, she said she thought it was just a car backfiring.
Concerned neighbors said if this was a random crime, they are appalled the suspect gained access to the gated community so easily. “I’ve noticed people come in behind other people after the gate has been opened,” said T. McDonald, a neighbor. “There is a way to get in.”
