Identifications in NW Ind. deaths may come Monday

LOWELL, Ind. — Authorities are using dental records and DNA to identify two people found apparently slain in a home in northwestern Indiana.

Lake County Sheriff John Buncich says officers discovered the deaths Friday afternoon while making a welfare check at a rural home near Lowell, about 20 miles south of Gary.

Buncich tells the Post-Tribune investigators hope to have conclusive identifications of the couple on Monday.

Buncich did not identify the victims but says they appear to be a man and woman. He says their bodies were in "severe decomposition."

Buncich says the deaths appear to be a double homicide and investigators have a person of interest in the case.
