The Beltrami County Sheriff's Office says the bodies of  30-year-old Melissa Siedenstricker and 29-year-old Zeth Knyphausen, were found at about 3 o'clock yesterday.

FRANKEN RETURNS TO CAPITOL HILL

Senator Al Franken HAS returned to Capitol Hill, for the first time since sexual misconduct allegations have been leveled against him.

Four women have now accused the Minnesota Democrat of misconduct.

Earlier this month, a California radio host said Franken forcibly kissed her and groped her in 2006.

Since then, three other women accused the Senator of improper behavior.

They say he touched them inappropriately during photo ops.

Senator Al Franken said, "I'm a warm person, I hug people, I would never intentionally do that. What I've learned is that I'm going to have to be more careful in these encounters in these situations. I respect that you have to listen to women you have to hear what they're saying, I respect their experience. That's why I apologize."

Franken says he has no plans to resign.

Instead, he wants to focus on earning back the people's trust by working as hard as he can in the Senate.
