When they arrived, police found a 22-year-old Ham Lake man and an Andover woman, 20, in the vehicle. They were both deceased, according to the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office.

Police report there were no obvious signs of trauma to either victim and at this time their causes of death are unknown. Law enforcement does not believe there is a risk to public safety in connection to the deaths. The case remains under investigation.

    Man oh man. Once BLM gets this story “Coon Rapids” is in for the name-storm of the century; better put name change funds into your next budget.
    Edit: this comment has just been flagged for review. The sole “objectionable” word is “coon”. How ironic is that?
