December 29, 2018

THOMASVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in North Carolina are investigating the deaths of two people whose bodies were found inside a home demolished by a fire.

The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Saturday that it was investigating the deaths as possible homicides. The Winston-Salem Journal reports that investigators found injuries on the bodies that weren’t consistent with deaths caused by a fire.

The names and ages of the deceased male and female weren’t immediately released.

Their bodies were discovered Thursday after firefighters extinguished the blaze at a house in Thomasville.

The bodies were sent to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Raleigh.
