A woman found two people dead in a Columbia Heights home Monday morning, according to a news release from the Anoka County Sheriff's Office.

Officials aren't releasing names, but they say a 64-year-old woman and a 52-year-old man have been found dead. The news release notes that this is an "unusual set of circumstances," but officials say both deaths can be accounted for and they do not suspect foul play.

The sheriff's department says the woman's death was not unexpected. She was a cancer patient on hospice care.

The man's death was unexpected, officials say. However, the news release notes he had a "significant health history."

Police say there is no danger to the public and a preliminary investigation suggests the deaths are not crime related.

According to officials, the woman who found the two people was a relative.
