      Decomposed bodies found in Erie County

      A shocking discovery by a postal worker has set off a criminal investigation in Huron Township after two bodies were discovered Saturday inside a condo at the Beachwood Villas.

      Huron Township -- A shocking discovery by a postal worker has set off a criminal investigation in Huron Township after two bodies were found Saturday inside a condo at the Beachwood Villas.

      Investigators say a postal worker found several weeks worth of mail stuffed inside the mailbox outside the condo. When deputies arrived, they found two badly decomposed bodies inside. Right now, all they can say is the victims appear to be a woman in her 80's and her son in his 60's.

      The bodies are being taken to the Lucas County Coroner's Officer for positive identification.

      Chief Deputy Jared Oliver says more testing is needed to confirm the identities, including DNA and dental records. "It's suspicious now because we don't know what happened," said Oliver.

      The BCI is also helping with the investigation. Detectives are trying to reach out to family members but haven't heard from any immediate family members yet.
