JONESBORO, Ark. – Police have identified two people found dead Tuesday in what they say appears to be a murder suicide.  

In a news release issued Wednesday, the Jonesboro Police Department released the names of an adult female and male as Terry Hardcastle, 39, and Johnny Cook, 50. 

Police said the two had resided at the address together for a period of time. 

Authorities confirm an infant was located unharmed in the residence and was taken out of the home and turned over to a family member before an officer returned to examine the scene.
