UPLAND — Authorities say a couple found dead in a northeastern Indiana mobile home may have died from accidental poisoning.
The Chronicle-Tribune reports the bodies of 52-year-old Jacendia Skeens and 62-year-old James Brown were found Saturday inside the trailer where they lived in Upland, about 60 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
Upland Town Marshal Steve Wolf says investigators have ruled out foul play or narcotics. He says that investigators suspect the deaths were caused by either chemical poisoning or carbon monoxide poisoning. He says that two cats also were found dead in the kitchen of the home.
Authorities were called to the trailer by Skeens’ husband, who had stopped by. The newspaper says the Skeens were separated and awaiting a divorce.
Cause of death is pending the results of toxicology tests.
