AUGUSTA, Kan. (AP) Police have identified two brothers found dead at their southeast Kansas home, but it’s still not known how they died.

The Butler County Times Gazette reports the two were identified Monday as 53-year-old Jeffrey Neal Jones and 50-year-old Brett Alan Jones.

The brothers shared a home in Augusta, where police responded to a call Friday afternoon about a man who collapsed outside the house. Police Chief Tyler Brewer says officers realized that man was deceased, then went inside and found the other man dead.

Brewer says the deaths were not suspicious. The bodies were taken to the Wichita Forensics Center to determine the cause of death. The investigation continued Monday.

A joint graveside service is scheduled Thursday afternoon at Augusta’s Elmwood Cemetery.
