A couple was found dead in a Greenpoint hot tub over the weekend.

Police say they found the couple, 58-year-old Jacek Crockiewitz and 66-year-old Alicja Wieczorkiewiez, expired in the bubbling pool in the woman’s apartment on Nassau Avenue between Humboldt and Diamond streets at 3:30 pm on Sunday. Crockiewitz lived in Queens.

Wieczorkie­wiez’s roommate first found the couple in the Jacuzzi at around 1:30 pm, cops said.

An empty gallon of vodka was found nearby, the Daily News reported.

Health experts claim there are myriad risks to soaking while drunk.

The city’s medical examiner has not yet determined what caused the couple’s deaths, police said.

Nancy from Greenpoint Brooklyn says:
What surprises me is why was the door to her apartment opened so that the mailman entered and found the bodies?. Special delivery for her on Sunday? From whom? Was this sender the guilty party?
Could it be that they were murdered and who ever did this to them left in such a hurry that he left the door opened?. What about the other tenants? Sunday is a quiet day did anybody hear or see any strangers there?
I think under the circumstances if this couple were in a sex thing in a hot tub the door would have been locked. I wonder if somebody who knew martial arts came in gave each of them a good chop, snapped their necks and killed them. If they were both drunk, their reflexes were slow. That's why they were propped up in the tub. No signs of brutality, no bullet holes, nothing visual. Or they took some drugs to enhance their sexual potency like Extacy and died. But both? The medical examiner should be able to determine what went wrong. How can two adults die at the same time, from what, was it poisoned vodka? Who poisoned the vodka? Its a mysterious situation. Police should investigate further, don't make fun because they were nude in a tub and up in age. If it was a murder, they must find the killer or killers. Was the apartment secured by police? or did they just laugh it off. This should be taken very seriously two people are dead for no reason. If it is a double homicide very rare in this neighborhood. Must be investigated because it is scary. Since when is having sex in your own home a crime? It was their private thing. Unfortunately ended sadly.
