An autopsy will take place Tuesday in Columbia, as Pettis County authorities hope to learn more about the dead bodies they found in a house fire.
The blaze started Monday morning on Morton Road between Sedalia and Whiteman Air Force Base. Firefighters noticed a body inside the home Monday afternoon. When investigators searched the residence more, they found a second body.
We don’t know the names of the victims yet, or how they died. Pettis County Sheriff Kevin Bond says the autopsy will hopefully sort that out.
