During the early morning hours of Sunday June 22nd, 2008 the Connecticut State Police began the investigations of the discoveries of two bodies on shoulders of on-ramps to I384 in Manchester and Bolton.
At approximately 5 a.m. a motorist reported the discovery of a body on the shoulder of the Exit 4 (Highland Street) westbound on-ramp of I384 in Manchester.
At approximately 7a.m. a different motorist reported the discovery of a body on the shoulder of exit 5 (Bolton Center Road) westbound on-ramp of I384 in Bolton.
Both of the bodies, whom are males, appear to be the victims of homicides however the Chief Medical Examiner will determine the cause and manner of death.
State Police Detectives from the Eastern District (Bolton incident) and the Central District (Manchester) Major Crime Squads are currently at each of these scenes collecting physical and forensic evidence and documenting the scene. 
The bodies will be taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner where post mortem examinations will be conducted. The O.C.M.E. will determine the exact manner and cause of death.
Based on the close proximity and similarities of these scenes these incidents appear to be related.  
At this time the identities of the victims are not being released pending the making of positive identification and notification of next of kin.
Anyone with information or who may have seen any activity releated to these scenes is asked to call the State Police via Troop H in Hartford
