Three neighbours said they heard screams from their house at 9pm on Monday night.
Unconfirmed claims on social media, along with gruesome photos of the two dead bodies, have included accusations that the Burmese army raped and murdered the two women.
The bodies were delivered to a hospital in Muse for autopsy. Photographs of the bodies and information from the villagers suggested they might have been raped and beaten to death.
The cause of death and the incident of rape have not yet been confirmed by medical professionals.
The Muyanmar army has been accused of sexual violence in conflict and the rumour gained traction among the local community, some of whom claimed that the area has seen a recent rise in military presence.
