May 7, 2018 - 10:31 AM

The bodies of a man and woman were discovered at HITS Post Time Farm showgrounds in Ocala, Florida, on Sunday, Jan. 14. The bodies were identified by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office as Angel Colon, 30, and Dayani Abreu, 28. Colon worked at the showgrounds, and a coworker found him dead with Abreu around noon on Sunday.

“He was a seasonal worker whom we found deceased in his apartment along with the deceased woman,” said HITS President and CEO Tom Struzzieri in an emailed statement. “We know little else and have no [further] comment.”

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation of the incident, but no suspects are being sought.

“The investigation is ongoing at this point in time,” said Lauren Lettelier, the public information officer for the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. “We are investigating the case and its pending toxicology reports, but we do not believe any foul play was involved.”

The bodies were discovered just before the start of the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit, 10 weeks of shows held at HITS Post Time Farm, on Jan. 16.

Update: The Marion County Sheriff’s Office officials announced May 5 that both Colon and Abreu died from accidental drug overdoses, according to the Ocala Star Banner.
