ELKHART — The Elkhart County Sheriff's Department is investigating the deaths of two people who were found inside a home west of Elkhart.

Mitchell Rider and Jamie Hooker, both 28, were found dead at 56788 Shore Ave., in Baugo Township, early Thursday afternoon, July 4, according to the sheriff's department.

Early indications suggest that carbon monoxide poisoning was a factor in their deaths, though a final ruling is still under review by the sheriff's department and the county coroner's office.

New York health officials are known for holdings drills on handling emergencies, and Ebola is no exception. Bellevue, the country's oldest public hospital, had been preparing for an Ebola patient in earnest since August. Ebola came to New York via Dr. Craig Spencer, who had been treating patients in Guinea. Spencer alerted his aid agency that he had developed a fever, and was transported to Bellevue by specially trained emergency workers cloaked in protective gear. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)
