A former Arizona State University football player and a woman were found dead inside an apartment on Friday.
Sgt Ben Hoster said Saturday that Birk and Haman were acquaintances.
Authorities said the bodies were found after police conducted a welfare check that was requested.
Birk's mother made the request, according to police, after she hadn't heard from her daughter for a week.
According to a police statement, Birk and Haman appeared to have been dead for some time.
Police "found evidence at the scene that indicates that drug use was related to the deaths, according to the station," wrote the Daily Mail.
Haman was recruited from Saguaro High School for Arizona State University's class of 2011. He committed to Arizona in 2010.
Records show that Haman started and stopped playing for the Sun Devils in 2011.
