ERSKINE, Minn. - Two bodies discovered Sunday in a home near here have been sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office in St. Paul for autopsies, Polk County Sheriff Mark LeTexier said Monday.

The bodies of David DeFrang, 44, and Tina Gerving, 39, both of Erskine, were found after the Sheriff 's Department was asked to do a welfare check at the residence, LeTexier said.

He said authorities aren't sure what type of connection there was between DeFrang and Gerving and he declined to provide any more details about the incident.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is working with the Sheriff 's Department on the case, he said.
