BURWELL, Neb. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the deaths of a man and his nearly 3-year-old daughter whose bodies were found inside a house in central Nebraska.
Ord radio station KNLV says the bodies were found Tuesday afternoon after officers were sent to the house to check on the residents. Neighbors had reported their concerns after seeing no activity at the home.
The bodies were identified as those of 31-year-old Christopher Melling, of Burwell, and Aimee Melling, who would have been 3 later this month.
Authorities say a firearm was found at the scene but have yet to rule on whether a crime was involved in the slayings. Autopsies have been ordered.
