ERIE, Pa. (AP) — A coroner has identified a body found at a northwestern Pennsylvania hotel that led to the arrest of two people suspected in a series of bank robberies.
Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook says the dead man is 28-year-old Kenneth Hubbert. Toxicology tests to confirm how he died are still pending.
Investigators say they were called to the downtown Erie hotel Sunday by someone concerned about the man's welfare, saying heroin may be involved.
Erie police then arrested 34-year-old Anthony Herrmann who allegedly acknowledged robbing two banks on Thursday and 27-year-old Erin Anderson, who acknowledged helping Herrmann rob one of them.
The Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/Up5oGH) reports the couple are suspects in bank robberies in New York and Ohio.
Herrmann and Anderson remain jailed.
