Polk County Sheriff Scott Sawyer says the body of 2-year-old Acelynn Wester was found in a heavily wooded area Friday near the town of Cove, not far from where her mother's body was located earlier this week.

The children's great-uncle was found dead Thursday at his home in a nearby town.

The deaths are being investigated as homicides.
