It looks like drugs played a role in the death of two people in rural Ada this week. That’s according to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office. On Wednesday investigators publicly identified the man found in a home at 23287 Township Road 56 as 23-year-old Blake Kendrick. Authorities identified the body of the woman found in the home as 18-year-old Marie Beach.

Lt. Chris Bell tells the Courier a friend of the two found the bodies. He had gone to the house to pick up the title to a car he recently bought.
