    The bodies of a man and another person were found Sunday morning buried in manure at a horse farm in Gary, Ind.

    Police found them after a man boarding his horse at the farm spotted what looked like a dead body in a pile of manure.

    When officers searched the area, they found one body partially wrapped in plastic and another also wrapped in plastic. Police are not sure how long they have been there.

    The Lake County Coroner was able to confirm that one is a man, but the sex of the other body was not determined. Further identification and causes of death are pending the results of an autopsy.

    The farm, which boards anywhere from 15 to 20 horses, is located in a wooded area at the dead end of Mississippi Street, just south of 22nd Avenue, in Gary.
