Authorities say carbon monoxide probably poisoned four people whose bodies were found Wednesday in a house in rural Mississippi.
Scott County Sheriff Mike Lee says deputies found a generator running and a heavy odor of exhaust gases when they entered the house near Forest at about 1:30 a.m. Lee says the generator appeared to be powering two heaters in the house.
Lee identified the victims as 22-year-old Carlos Jermaine Boyd, 39-year-old Moises Hernandes Conde, 19-year-old Travis Hunt and 18-year-old Tiffany Weaver. Lee says there was no sign of trauma on the bodies. Autopsies were ordered.
A 17-year-old woman was found alive and was hospitalized. Her condition was not known.
The sheriff says the relationships of the victims weren't known.
