The Akron Police Department is working a homicide case after finding a series of bodies in the Akron area.

Investigators were dispatched to Cordova Ave in Akron after a passerby called police to report two bodies they saw on the side of the road around 8:30 Friday morning. When officers arrived to the scene, they discovered the two deceased males who appeared to have been “bound and gagged.”

Shortly after arriving to the scene, investigators were notified that a third body was found in Copley. Investigators are working to determine if the two incidents are connected.

The names of the victims have not been released at this time.
