ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - A coroner says a man whose badly decomposed body was found in a central Indiana nature preserve died from two gunshots to the head.

Madison County Coroner Marian Dunnichay identified the victim Tuesday as 36-year-old David Lamar Phillips II of Anderson.

His body was discovered Monday at the Rangeline Nature Preserve in Anderson, just west of Mounds State Park.

Madison County Sheriff Scott Mellinger says three Anderson residents have been arrested in connection with his death.

Mellinger says Phillips’ death may be connected to that of a woman whose body was found Tuesday on farmland in Grant County just north of the Madison County line. The woman has not been identified.

The sheriff says a man already in custody led investigators to the woman’s body.
