GRAFTON, Ohio -- When police conducted a welfare check Sunday afternoon they made a grisly discovery.

Responding officers found a pair of badly decomposed bodies -- one male, one female -- inside a property at 800 Barchard Street shortly after 5 p.m.

Due to the state of decomposition, a positive identification of the bodies could not be made on scene.

Police say one firearm was found at the scene.

Authorities are continuing to investigate.
