Bodies of three men found in central Illinois home

DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) — Three men were found dead Thursday in a central Illinois home in what police say may be a triple homicide.

Danville police say they responded to a report of subjects down inside the residence. There they found the bodies of three men ranging in age from 60 to 67 years old.

Vermilion County Coroner Jane McFadden identified the victims as Nathaniel Gentry, 65; Anthony D. Jones, 60, and Cordell Reed Sr., 67, all of Danville. In a statement, McFadden said autopsies of the men are scheduled for Friday.

``This investigation is in the early stages and is being treated as a homicide investigation,” said police Cmdr. Josh Webb.

Danville police, Illinois State Crime Scene Union and the Vermilion County coroner’s office are investigating the circumstances of the three men’s deaths.
