Police: 2 Ohio train track deaths likely suicides

Published:

DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) -- Police in central Ohio say they're investigating the deaths of two people apparently hit by a train as a double-suicide.

A railroad crew called police early Wednesday morning to report that a train had struck someone in the city of Delaware, north of Columbus.

Police tell media outlets that a man and woman were found dead on railroad tracks with identification information and a note indicating that they were siblings and that they intended to commit suicide. Police said a blanket and pillows found near the scene may indicate that the pair had waited for the train.
