WALKER -- The Cass County Sheriff's Department is investigating the deaths of two Pine River residents.
Dead are Colleen Jewell, 46, Pine River, and Tom Anderson, 40, Pine River.
The two people were in a relationship, Cass County Sheriff Randy Fisher said.
Jewell, first transported to St. Joseph's Medical Center in Brainerd, died Sunday at St. Cloud Hospital. Anderson committed suicide Monday.
The provisional autopsy performed by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office determined Jewell died as a result of a closed head trauma. The medical examiner's office has not yet determined the manner of death, whether natural causes, accidental, homicide or suicide, Fisher said.
Aside from the man and woman being in a relationship together, it was undetermined to what extent their deaths were related, sheriff's officials said.
