MORROW COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - Authorities have now identified two bodies found in a wooded area near a stolen truck.

The victims, Kimberly G. Noble, 38-years-old and Gary L. Noble Jr., age 32, both of Olmsted Falls, Ohio, appeared to have been there for some time and were in a state of decomposition. The cause of death is unknown and the bodies were taken to the Franklin County Coroner's Office for autopsy.

Shortly before 8:30PM on Wednesday, Morrow County 911 received a call regarding a possible stolen truck with two bodies lying nearby.

Sheriff's Deputies responded to the scene along County Road 21 just east of State Route 61 in southern Morrow County. Upon arriving they located an F550 truck that had been reported stolen out of Lorain County.

Witnesses said that the truck had been parked there for several days. Nearby residents became concerned and discovered the bodies when they approached the truck.

A handgun was recovered from the scene. The preliminary investigation indicates a possible murder/suicide.

The Morrow County Sheriff's Office is continuing the investigation with the assistance of Ohio BCI&I and the Lorain County Sheriffs Office.
