RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Autopsy results haven't determined the cause of death for three North Carolina women whose bodies were found within blocks of each other in 2017.

The Fayetteville Observer reports while the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Raleigh called the three deaths suspicious, they have not been ruled as homicides.

Authorities said the bodies of 36-year-old Rhonda Lynn Jones and 32-year-old Kristin Noel Bennett were found April 18, 2017. They said the body of 28-year-old Megan Ann Oxendine was found about seven weeks later. The medical examiner's office said drugs were present in all three bodies, which were found in varying stages of decomposition.

The case is being investigated by the FBI at the request of Lumberton police. So far, there have been no arrests in the case.
