Two of the bodies were found in Akron, Ohio and the third was not far away in Copley, Ohio, the Copley Police Department said in a Saturday release, adding that it had started a joint investigation with the Akron Police Department.
The bodies were discovered on the side of the road in wooded areas.

Police believe that the men were likely kidnapped and brought into Summit County but said that investigators believed the incidents were “isolated” and there’s no danger to the community.
Not all of the victims have been identified and investigators aren’t sure of the motive yet.
The victims were shot while they were bound and gagged, police said.
