Names released in Iowa violent deaths case

Posted: Updated:

AKRON, Iowa (AP) - Northwest Iowa authorities have released the names of two elderly people who a sheriff says died violent deaths.

Plymouth County Sheriff Mike Van Otterloo on Friday identified them as 83-year-old Donald John Neunaber and 80-year-old Esther Grace Neunaber. It's unclear whether they were married or otherwise related.

Their bodies were found Wednesday. The cause of their deaths hasn't been released.

A man sought as a witness was found in La Crosse, Wisconsin. He was detained by police there after he was stopped for a traffic violation on Thursday night. He was held on the Iowa warrant for a material witness. Arrangements are being made to return him to Iowa.

Van Otterloo says the man lives at the rural Akron home where the bodies were found.
