OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities in eastern Kansas are investigating the deaths of three people whose bodies were found on a rural property. The bodies of two adult men and one woman were found Monday on the farm west of Ottawa, which is located about 60 miles southwest of Kansas City. Sheriff Jeff Richards said at a news conference Tuesday that the deaths are being investigated as homicides. Richards declined to release other details, including the victims' identities or how they were killed. Friends of a resident of the farm said they went to the farm Sunday and called police after smelling a foul odor. They said police looked over the home and area and attributed the bad smell to garbage. Police returned to the farm Monday and found the bodies.
