BLOOMING PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — A southern Minnesota sheriff says there’s no sign of foul play in the deaths of two women found in a rural home near Blooming Prairie.

Freeborn County Sheriff Bob Kindler says there was no trauma to the bodies.

The Albert Lea Tribune reports authorities have not ruled out possible carbon monoxide poisoning and are waiting for autopsy results.

The bodies were found Tuesday on two different levels of the house. Sheriff’s deputies were called to check on someone there who hadn’t shown up for work for two straight days.

The names, ages and relationship of the victims have not been released.
