A young couple were found mysteriously dead in their Dundee, Michigan, apartment on Tuesday, October 18. When investigators arrived at the scene just after 1 a.m., they discovered bags of uneaten Taco Bell takeout near the bodies as well as drug paraphernalia and a pound of marijuana on the kitchen table. There were no signs of trauma, foul play or forced entry. Find out more in the video above, and detailed below.
The husband and wife, who have been identified as Cameron Hulet, 28, and Courtney Hulet, 20, had been living in Monroe County for just six months, but authorities were familiar with the couple. “Cameron had some drug issues,” Dundee Village manager and former police chief David Uhl told Us Weekly. “Our department had also responded there several times on domestic issues. A lot of complaints from neighbors saying there was yelling and screaming.”
Two young children were recently removed from the home by Child Protective Services and are currently in foster care.
While Uhl suspects drugs were involved, police are awaiting the results of a toxicology report to determine the cause of death.
“I don’t think Cameron and Courtney died from marijuana,” Uhl told Us. “But marijuana can be laced with something, and we’re having a lot of trouble with fentanyl. That can kill you immediately.”
A neighbor in the Hulets’ triplex found the pair lying on the floor at 9 a.m. on October 17 and assumed they were sleeping. “She heard a groan and then closed the door and left,” said Uhl. When the same woman returned at 1 a.m. and found them in the same position, she called the police.
According to Uhl, detectives are pulling video from Taco Bell to determine if anyone else was with the Hulets that evening.
