BAUGO TOWNSHIP Officials have confirmed the official cause of death of two people whose bodies were found in their Baugo Township home on the 4th of July.

Mitchell Rider and Jamie Hooker were found to have more than 80 percent carbon monoxide in their blood. Anything more than 40 is considered toxic.

A car running in the garage spread the poison.

The bodies were discovered by Rider's father. He passed out in the home, shortly after dialing 911.
