Authorities in Michigan were still investigating what led to the death of a young couple after they were found unresponsive in their apartment right before they were set to eat dinner.
Cameron Hulet, 28, and his wife Courtney Hulet, 20, were discovered in their Dundee apartment Tuesday night. Police said they were about to eat their fast food dinner when they suddenly died, according to the Monroe News.
“It’s really a puzzle,” Dave Uhl, their apartment manager, told the paper. “There is no indication as to what happened. It’s a mystery.”
Dundee Police Chief Todd Opperman said that Child Protective Services had recently removed two young children from their home. Police also discovered about a pound of marijuana on the kitchen table nearby where the couple was found dead. Officials believe marijuana may have played a part in their deaths. Uhl said it appeared the drugs were in the process of being divided for sale.
Police said that neither victim had any signs of trauma, and there were no signs that a third person was involved in their deaths. Police said a neighbor was stopping by to visit the couple when the two on the floor. The neighbor thought they were just sleeping and decided to come back later. Upon their return, the neighbor found the two in the same spot and decided to call police.
Cameron Hulet had a criminal history dating back 10 years, including charges of possession of marijuana, assault and other driving offenses.
The paper reported that the county medical examiner will determine the cause of death when the autopsy is finished and the toxicology results are made available.
