Two women found dead at Palms Casino Resort off Las Vegas Strip in suspected murder-suicide

TWO women were found dead inside a hotel room in Las Vegas in a suspected murder-suicide, according to reports.

They were found by employees at the Palms Casino Report around 3pm on Tuesday.

The guests, said to be in their 30s, reportedly hadn’t checked out of the hotel prompting security guards to visit the room, Las Vegas Sun reports.

They couldn’t get into the room at first so employees forced down the door and the bodies were found on the bed.

Cops believe the women died from gunshot wounds and that they died within 12 hours of being discovered.

It's suspected they may have been "romantically involved" but no further details have been provided.

Their identities have not been revealed but it's thought that they were locals to the city.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Homicide Lt Ray Spencer said: “We know that at least one of them was alive as early as 5am.”

Cops are unsure if they died at the same time.

Lt. Spencer said that there were no reports of gunshots from anyone nearby.

Police are working with hotel security to go through CCTV footage as the investigation continues.

Palms Casino Resort boasts a 9,000-square-foot Sky Villa which costs around $40,000 a night to rent.

The luxury hotel has some of the most extravagant suites in Las Vegas.

Its Harwood Suite contains a private basketball court.
