Cosom's 39-year-old boyfriend, who lived there as well, answered the door.  He's now in police custody.

The younger woman's 39-year-old boyfriend answered the door. He's now in police custody.

"The investigation is still very early in its stages and we still have a lot more work to do before we can go further. But it this point it appears that the 39-year-old is we are looking for," Philadelphia Police Homicide Unit Captain John Ryan said.
