Indiana State Police and the Vigo County Coroner’s Office have positively identified the deceased male found under a private road bridge in northwestern Vigo County last weekend.
Police say that fingerprints have helped them identify the man as 76 year old Nevelland Thompson Jr of Tippecanoe Street in Terre Haute.
He and a woman were found near 7400 West Pennington Road.
Autopsy results show that the woman, who has yet to be identified, was strangled.
The investigation into the cause and manner of Thompson’s death continues.
Police say that there is no evidence to suggest a third party suspect.
