Authorities Identify Dead Akron Couple

(Le Mars) -- Plymouth County Sheriff Mike Van Otterloo has released the names of the two elderly individuals found dead at their Akron rural residence Wednesday evening.  They are 83 year old Donald Neunaber and his wife 80 year old Esther Neunaber. The bodies were removed from their home Thursday evening at about 6:00 p.m. and transferred to the State Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy to be performed today.  Investigators are continuing to process the scene of the deaths and hope to complete that part of the investigation by late this afternoon.  44 year old Jonathon Neunaber is the son of the deceased couple and had a warrant issued as a material witness.  Neunaber was located by officers in La Crosse, Wisconsin last evening.  Agents from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation will travel to Wisconsin to continue their investigation in this case. The Plymouth County Sheriff and Plymouth County Attorney's office will be working on arrangements to have Jonathon Neunaber transported back to Plymouth County.  Neunaber has not been charged with any crime and is being held as a material witness in this case.
