KINGSLEY, Mich. (AP) — Police say two veteran Michigan corrections officers have been found dead in the northern Michigan home they shared.

The Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the deaths of 53-year-old Tara Kelley and 49-year-old Angelina Winn at the home near Kingsley. They were found dead Friday. Both worked at Oaks Correctional Facility near Manistee.

The causes of their deaths have not been released, but the sheriff’s office said in a news release there was no reason to believe there was a threat to the public.

Both women spent most of their corrections careers at Pugsley Correctional Facility in Kingsley and moved to the Oaks in 2016 when Pugsley closed.

MDOC Director Heidi Washington sent an email to employees informing them of the deaths.
