DORRIS, Calif. — An autopsy report shows two people died in Siskiyou County died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Their deaths are being ruled accidental. 

Police believe the source of the carbon monoxide is a wood stove and another heater in the trailer home. The autopsy showed high levels of carbon monoxide in the systems of the victims. 

The Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office says it plans to release the victims names within the next few days.

An investigation is now underway after deputies found the bodies of a man and woman in a trailer near the community of Dorris on Wednesday, according to a statement from the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office (SCSO).

SCSO said that they received a call about the bodies around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Driving out to Big Stump Road near Mud Lake, deputies spoke to a neighbor who reported finding the dead man and woman in a trailer before calling the authorities.

"Both of the decedents had identification with addresses outside of the county," SCSO said.

Although the trailer was situated on a property that included an operational marijuana grow site, SCSO said that they found no evidence of foul play or criminal activity in the trailer.

Investigators have planned an autopsy for later this week in order to determine the manner and cause of death, but the case remains under "active investigation," SCSO said. The names of the two deceased parties will not be released until they have been positively identified and next-of-kin has been notified.

“On behalf of the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office, I would like to offer our thoughts and prayers to the decedents, their families, and friends. This case is still under investigation and anyone with information is urged to contact the SCSO’s 24-hour Dispatch Center at (530) 841-2900,” said Sheriff Jon Lopey.
