The two people whose bodies were found deceased earlier this month, have been identified, but the exact cause of death has yet to be determined.

Sheridan County Coroner Dr. Robert Byrd says the bodies of 39-year old Erin Johnson and her son, 13-year old Owen Lawson were found by Sheridan Police Officers just before 7pm on Friday, January 6th, at their home at 1511 Mydland Road lot #138.

A caller told police the single family mobile home dwelling had a water leak and that attempts to contact the residents were not successful.

Sheridan Police Department officers determined that exigent circumstances existed and breached a door to the residence and found the bodies inside a short time later.

Dr. Byrd says the manner of their death was a homicide, but the exact cause of death is still being investigated.

The initial follow-up investigation revealed one suspect who was found to be deceased in Colorado.

    Such a sad case. It’s important to heal family RIFTS and get to KNOW and CARE about your neighbors.
