The Sheriff says family members found Melissa Proffitt, 41, and Richard Saylor, 31, dead Saturday in Proffitt's home on Mosley Branch.

Autopsy results are not finished yet, but the deputy coroner says there is nothing suspicious and carbon monoxide is ruled out.

The Sheriff also says there were no signs anything suspicious inside the home.
