Police in Barron County, Wisconsin, are investigating the fatal stabbing of a woman in a trailer, who was found just hours after a man who lived in the same trailer died in a head-on crash.

The first report came in at 5:47 a.m. on Hwy. 8, when a car driven by Eldon Jackson, 21, of Cameron, crossed the centerline and hit a dump truck just west of Barron.

Jackson was killed in the crash, with police finding he was driving a car belonging to Audra Poppe, 22, of Rice Lake, Wisconsin.

Then, at 10:51 a.m., deputies were called to a trailer at 800 South Limits, Cameron, after a report of a woman dead from a stab wound.

It was there that deputies found Poppe's body.

"These two cases appear to be related and more information will be released after the autopsy and evidence is processed and examined," the Barron County Sheriff's Department said.

"There is no danger to the public and we are not looking for any suspects."
