LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities have identified a couple who were found dead inside a Las Vegas apartment.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office on Sunday confirmed the man and woman’s identities as Nehemiah Kauffman and Sydney Ellysse Land, respectively. Land was 21 years old, Kauffman was 20.

The cause and manner of death are still pending for both.

According to Las Vegas police, a friend who hadn’t heard from Kauffman in a few days went to check on him Thursday and found the bodies.

Investigators say the man had evidence of gunshot wounds.

The bodies are believed to have been inside the apartment for at least a day before they were found.

Police say there was no evidence of forced entry into the unit.

They are still searching for a suspect.
