PORT BOLIVAR, Texas (AP) -

The bodies of two women have been found near a garbage bin on the Bolivar Peninsula near Galveston.

Homicide detectives were at the scene Friday adjacent to a store in Port Bolivar. Authorities believe the women were killed elsewhere and their bodies dumped near the bin.

Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo with the Galveston County Sheriff's Office told the Houston Chronicle it was unclear how the women died. The Galveston County Medical Examiner's Office is working to determine the cause.

The bodies were discovered about 7:45 a.m. Friday.

No other information was immediately available.
