BUCYRUS, Ohio — A coroner has released the names of three of the four men found beaten to death in separate homes in a small Ohio town.

Dr. Michael Johnson, the Crawford County coroner, said the bodies of 55-year-old Billy Jack Chatman and 67-year-old Freelin Hensley were found Monday in their homes in Bucyrus (byoo-SY’-rus).

Then on Tuesday, the body of 65-year-old Darrell Lewis was found in his apartment. Johnson said the identity of the fourth victim, found in an apartment in the same complex Tuesday, hasn’t been confirmed.

Police believe the killings are related. A man came into the police station and led deputies to the last two bodies Tuesday. He is in custody, but hasn’t been charged.

The town of 12,000 residents is about 65 miles north of Columbus.
