More information is expected in the deaths of two people found slain in a rural home in northwestern Indiana.

Lake County Sheriff John Buncich said more information will be provided during a Monday news conference.

Authorities are using dental records and DNA to identify the two people who were found apparently slain in a rural home near Lowell, about 20 miles south of Gary. Buncich says the victims appear to be a man and woman. He says their bodies were in "severe decomposition."

Buncich says officers discovered the deaths Friday afternoon while making a welfare check at a home near Lowell, about 20 miles south of Gary.

The sheriff says investigators have a person of interest they want to talk to.
