Authorities are investigating a quadruple homicide after four people were found dead in an abandoned vehicle in western Wisconsin. 

"The victims do not appear to have any connection to the area. The victims were found in an abandoned black SUV that was driven into a standing corn field off of a rural road in Sheridan township," the Dunn County Sheriff's Office said in a release. 

The bodies were found at approximately 2:18 p.m. Monday, with the sheriff's office noting that the SUV has Minnesota license plates. 

"There may have been a second dark colored SUV traveling with the black SUV that may be related," the release says. 

Anyone who may have seen the vehicles in the area is asked to contact the sheriff's office at 715-232-1348. 

Authorities do not believe there is any threat to the public. 

The identities of the victims have not been released.
