(The original story is here from when the two were found last Wednesday, May 5.)

Television station WTOK reported that the MPD said it found no apparent causes of death found at the scene when it was processed for evidence.

The Mississippi Crime Lab in Jackson conducted the autopsies on the bodies, and based on the preliminary autopsy results, no official causes of death were determined.

Officials were able to rule out physical beating, shooting, or stabbing as the cause. Officials say that toxicology evidence may provide the answer.
