Indiana State Police and the Vigo County Coroner's Office have identified the man found under a bridge Saturday in Vigo County.

Police say the man was identified as 76-year-old Nevelland A. Thompson, Jr. of Terre Haute.  Thompson was reported missing on October 12 after having last been seen on October 10.  The investigation into the cause and manner of his death continues.

Police say there is no evidence to suggest a third party suspect.  The female body found with Thompson has not yet been identified.  The coroner's office say it could take up to one month to get a positive identification if DNA has to be utilized.

State Police said Sunday they believed the two victims were in a relationship.
