Parma Heights police discovered two badly decomposed bodies inside a Parma Heights home on Wednesday.

The two bodies were found inside the main bedroom of the home at 6209 Nelwood Road.

Captain Steve Scharschmidt of the Parma Heights Police Department said they are treating the scene as a homicide.

Police arrived at the home at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday in search of Regina Capobianco, 50, of Stark County. She was reported missing last month by her sister.

The home is owned by John Mann Junior, who police tell News 5 is the boyfriend of Capobianco.

When police discovered the body of Capobianco, they called BCI and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office for assistance.  It was then that a second body was discovered.

The bodies were so badly decomposed, the medical examiner is unable to confirm identification.

Police were searching for Capobianco because she was in need of heart medication. 

Parma Heights police said they have been called to the home several times in the past two years. Junior has been charged in connection with prostitution and drug activity in the past.

Police can't confirm if the two bodies found inside the home are those of Capobianco and Junior.

After Junior acquired the house from his late father, police said he ran the house into foreclosure.

The incident remains under investigation.
