SUMMERSVILLE - Nicholas County is in shock after not one, but two bodies are found.

On Wednesday, State Police were called to the Store-All Facility off Old Route 19, after the owner found what he believed to be human remains.

State Police Sgt. Ron Lilly says they were able to identify some human remains but they were very decomposed. The State Medical Examiner was called to the scene and the bodies were taken to their office Thursday afternoon. Police say they aren’t sure how long the bodies have been in the storage unit.

Police say they are questioning the owner of the storage unit where the bodies were found, but until they make an arrest, which they may not, they are withholding that person’s name.
