BUCYRUS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in a northern Ohio town are asking for the public's help in solving the slayings of four men whose bodies were found in separate homes this week.
Police in Bucyrus (byoo-SY'-rus) say the four men were found beaten to death Monday. All were between the ages of 50 and 70. They probably knew one another, and police are investigating whether the slayings are connected.
The victims' names haven't been released.
A man who came into the police station and led deputies to the last two bodies Monday is in custody, but he has not been charged.
Some of the residents of the town of 12,000 about 65 miles north of Columbus say they are now worried about their safety in a place unaccustomed to a lot of violent crime.
