    Police are investigating the deaths of two people who were found in Hamilton Township, Mercer County on Saturday.

    Officials say a jogger discovered a burning body shortly before 11 a.m. at the Yardville Hamilton Square entrance of Veterans Park.

    Officials have not yet revealed the person’s identity or a cause of death. They are investigating to determine if the person set themselves on fire.

    An hour and a half later, police say a group of volunteers discovered the body of 35-year-old Christopher Bonnet in the woods off Cyprus Lane, which is adjacent to Veterans Park.

    Police say Bonnet's death was likely a suicide but this has not been officially confirmed.

    Bonnet had been missing since October 16.

    Despite their close proximity, police say the deaths of Bonnet and the unidentified victim are not related.
