Plymouth County authorities are investigating the death of two elderly residents in Akron, Iowa. The bodies of Donald John Neunabor,(83) and Esther Grace Neunabor (80) were found in their home in the 17000 block of 180th Street on Thursday. Authorities estimate the deaths occurred a few weeks ago. Jonathan Neunabor, who lived in the same house as the victims, is in custody for questioning.
Plymouth County Sheriff, Mike Van Otterloo, says the investigation is still in the preliminary stages.

Neunabor, the 44-year old chairman of the Plymouth County Democratic Party, was arrested in La Crosse, Wisconsin when police stopped him for a traffic violation. Otterloo says that the crime scene team is working, agents are bringing the suspect to Iowa, and the medical examiners are still working.

Otterloo says the crime is labeled as violent and suspicious deaths, which could rise to the level of a double homicide.
