SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Sacramento County Coroner has identified a woman and her nephew whose bodies were found in different locations, but whose deaths might be connected.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/2oJsZbO ) that 54-year-old Linda Jeanette Zachmeyer was found stabbed to death in her apartment Tuesday morning by a friend who was concerned when she failed to show up for work.

Police say the body of 34-year-old Christopher Bubier was found on a street about a mile (1.61 kilometers) away hours earlier. Authorities say he had upper body trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Tony Turnbull says that homicide detectives are looking into a possible connection in the deaths.

Turnbull says though it’s too early to tell, the man may have killed himself.
