Officials in Franklin County, Ky. were called to a disturbing scene last Friday, March 14, 2014. Two bodies were found inside a Frankfort, Ky. mobile home, but the cause of death has not been determined as of yet. The bodies were those of a married couple, Charles and Dora Kelly.

Prior to the tragic discovery, Franklin County officials had concerns about the living conditions in the couple's mobile home. During a welfare check in Feb. 2014, officials contacted Franklin County adult protective services after finding the couple living in "deplorable conditions", LEX 18 News reports.

Officials, it seems, were not unjust in their assessment of the home. Reports indicate that the mobile home may have contained a "faulty exhaust system", as well as a great deal of cat urine and feces, which the couple had been living among. The faulty exhaust system may be a clue to the cause of death possibly being carbon monoxide poisoning. On the other hand, officials have made no mention thus far of carbon monoxide.

Relatives, concerned for the well-being of Charles and Dora, had contacted Franklin County deputies earlier the same day that their bodies were found. Further information is unavailable at this time, and police have made no statements as to whether or not foul play is suspected. However, according to LEX 18, "the Franklin County Coroner is investigating the cause of death".
