This is never the outcome we want or the news we want to deliver, my heart breaks for their family,” said Sheriff Jeremy Briese. “Our Sheriff’s Chaplains and staff are working with their family and will continue to support them during this heartbreaking time.

A cause of death isn’t clear at this time, so the scene is being treated as a hazmat and coroner investigation, las autoridades dijeron.

It could be a carbon monoxide situation. That’s one of the reasons why we’re treating it as a hazmat situation,” said Kristie Mitchell, a spokeswoman with the sheriff’s office.
