Maj. Keith Whitlow of New Albany police said Wednesday the deaths are being treated as homicides even though the bodies lack any obvious signs of foul play. The victims' names have not been released.
Messages left Thursday morning for Whitlow, other officers and the Floyd County Coroner were not immediately returned.
Whitlow told The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., that more information will be released following autopsies on the bodies, which were found Wednesday afternoon in New Albany.
He told the News and Tribune of Jeffersonville one of the children appeared to be around 2 years old and the other was an adolescent.
