JACKSON, N.J. (AP) - Investigators in New Jersey believe murder-suicide likely links the deaths of a man found hanging from a bucket truck and a woman found beaten to death on his kitchen floor.

Police in Holmdel found 32-year-old Tyree Johnson of Jackson hanging from the bucket of a cable television repair truck on Wednesday morning.

Police found no one at his home when they went to notify relatives about his death and they used his key to go inside. A strong odor led them to the kitchen, where they found 29-year-old Christy Keronen of Lakewood dead with apparent head trauma.

The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office says Keronen’s family had reported her missing earlier in the day after last seeing her on Sunday.

Officials have not said how the two may be connected.
