Minn. Couple Found Dead, No Foul Play Suspected

MOUNDS VIEW, Minn. (AP) — A married couple has been found dead in their Mounds View home. Police don’t suspect foul play.

Police Chief Tom Kinney says officers responded Saturday afternoon to a request to check on the home’s occupants. They found a 50-year-old man and his 45-year-old wife dead inside.

Kinney says authorities believe narcotics were involved. He tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press it’s too early to tell whether the couple took their own lives or died of accidental drug overdoses.

Police say toxicology reports won’t be available for several weeks.

The couple’s names haven’t been released.
