While searching for two missing men from Massachusetts, investigators found two bodies in a rural area in northeastern Vermont. The discovery of the bodies occurred as police followed up on information that detectives developed while searching for Jahim Solomon, 21, of Pittsfield and Eric White, 21, of Chicopee. The bodies were found in Eden in a wooded area off of the Albany-Eden Road. The bodies were found just under a mile apart from each other. They were off the road in wooded areas. Official determination of their identities will come from the Vermont Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington, which will also perform autopsies to determine the cause and manner of the deaths. The circumstances of the disappearance of Solomon and White are suspicious. The State Police is treating the discovery of the bodies as a homicide investigation. State Police has made no arrests connected to this investigation but has identified several persons of interest and possible suspects. Detectives believe this was an isolated event.
