LE MARS, Iowa (AP) — Authorities are investigating the deaths of two elderly people whose bodies were found inside a house in northwest Iowa.
Plymouth County Sheriff Mike Van Otterloo said at a news conference Thursday that the causes of death were violent in nature. He did not elaborate but said the deaths were not from suicide or natural causes.
Investigators say they're looking for a person of interest in connection to the deaths. They have released a man's name, but he is not a suspect and no charges have been filed.
The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1qpqvur ) the elderly people, whose names have not been released, were found Wednesday night inside a house in Akron, a small rural community that borders South Dakota.
