MANNFORD, Oklahoma -

The identity has been released for one of two men found inside a home near Mannford earlier this week.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said one of the men found dead on Wednesday in a home along West Basin Road has been identified as Ward Ray Bartlett, 60.

The Pawnee County sheriff said a physical therapist with home health went to the mobile home for a scheduled weekly visit on Thursday, but couldn't get in and called for help. Deputies discovered the bodies around 12:30 p.m. in separate rooms.

Investigators believe the bodies had been inside the house for multiple days.
