Forest, Miss.

Scott County Coroner Phyllis Irby says carbon monoxide poisoning claimed the lives of four people whose bodies were found Wednesday in a home near Forest. The deaths were ruled accidental.

The victims were 22-year-old Carlos Jermaine Boyd, 39-year-old Moises Hernandes Conde, 19-year-old Travis Hunt and 18-year-old Tiffany Weaver.

An unidentified 17-year-old survived and is hospitalized.

Sheriff Mike Lee says deputies found the bodies and a heavy odor of exhaust gas when they entered the house early Wednesday.

A generator inside the house was believed to be the source of the poison gas.
