Two decapitated bodies pulled this week from the Detroit River and a creek have been identified as a 42-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman.
Allen Park police say the victims were Chris Hall and Danielle Greenway, both residents of the Detroit suburb.
The U.S. Coast Guard recovered the torsos Tuesday. An angler later spotted body parts underwater and along a seawall not far from where the torsos were found.
Police said during a news conference Friday that the victims were fatally shot before being cut up and tossed into the water.
The Detroit News reports police searched an Allen Park home Thursday. Neighbors say a man who had recently moved in with two people whose decapitated bodies were found in the water earlier this week has been removed from the home by police.
Richard Dolliver says the man didn't appear to be handcuffed Thursday, but emptied his pockets before getting into a police car. Dolliver says the man has not returned to the home in Allen Park, a Detroit suburb.
Samantha Dolliver lives across the street from the couple, who were engaged. She says a man described as Greenway's friend moved in about three weeks ago.
Police are looking for Greenway's van, a tan 2005 GMC Safari with Michigan license plate 7JCM9.
Coast Guard Lt. Justin Westmiller told the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday that a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officer on routine patrol in a vehicle on the shore spotted the first body in Fox Creek around 6:30 a.m. The second body was spotted about 7:15 a.m. in the Detroit River.
Westmiller says the bodies' hands, feet and heads "were clearly cut off."
He didn't know how long the bodies of the man and woman had been in the water. Detroit police are handling the investigation.
According to the Free Press, the man who discovered several body parts, Hollis Fussell, was fishing off Alter Park when he found the pieces. The Free Press reports that three white legs, a cordless circular saw, suit case and a sheet could clearly be seen in about 3 feet of water at the bottom of the Detroit River.
As police worked the scene late Tuesday morning, Fussell told The Detroit Free Press, "[I was] trying to sit down and enjoy my fishing -- we know this city is rough, but man 'o man."
