MONTCALM, W.Va. (AP) - Police are investigating the deaths of three family members whose bodies were found in a house in Mercer County.
Mercer County Sheriff D.B. Meadows tells media outlets that the deaths are suspicious.
Meadows says a neighbor found the bodies of 39-year-old Lesly Joe Hicks and two other men at Hicks’ home in Montcalm on Friday evening. The sheriff identified the other men as Hicks’ brother, 52-year-old Joseph Dean Hicks of Bluewell, and the brothers’ great-uncle, 57-year-old Ernest David Hicks of Bluewell.
Meadows says the cause of the deaths hasn’t been determined. The bodies were sent to the state medical examiner for autopsies.
