According to a statement issued by Sgt. Ben Hoster Saturday, the two are identified as Veronica Birk, 25, and Brock Haman, 24. Birk and Haman, according to the statement, are acquaintances.

According to an official with Arizona State University athletics, Haman was an ASU football player for a short time.

The two, according to Scottsdale Police on Friday, were found dead inside an apartment on the 7000 block of E. Chaparral Road, after police conducted a welfare check.

According to the statement released on Saturday, it was Birk's mother who requested the welfare check, Birk's mother, according to police, lives out of state.
