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.
