GARY, Ind. (AP) - A coroner is seeking the public’s help identifying two women whose bodies were found over the weekend in abandoned homes in Gary.

Lake County Coroner Merrilee Frey urged the public Tuesday to contact her office if they might know either woman based on descriptions of their clothing and jewelry.

Frey says one unidentified woman found Sunday stood 5-foot-3 and was wearing a silver-colored linked bracelet with the phrase “Best Aunt.” That woman was also wearing two silver-colored rings, one with a heart shape and the other with scalloped engravings.

The other victim stood 5 foot tall and was wearing black Rue21 jeans size 3 / 4 and white Nike gym shoes.

Police found six bodies after questioning 43-year-old Darren Vann in a seventh woman’s death.
