ASHLAND, Ohio — An Ohio police chief says two bodies were found in a house where a woman was rescued after an abduction.

Ashland chief David Marcelli said a suspect in the Tuesday abduction was in custody and being questioned. Marcelli didn’t provide details about the bodies.

Ashland County coroner Dale Thomae (TOH’-may) said he didn’t know the gender of the victims, and said he hadn’t been allowed into the scene yet.

Thomae said he’ll use whatever means necessary to identify the bodies, but that could take time.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation was processing the crime scene. BCI spokeswoman Jill Del Greco said eight agents were assisting in collecting evidence.

Ashland is about 80 miles (128 kilometers) north of Columbus.
