MACON, Ga. (AP) — A mother and son were found dead in a Georgia home, but officials say there were no signs of foul play.

News outlets report 65-year-old Shirley Haynes and 50-year-old Frank Roberts were found dead on Tuesday.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones says the two had been dead for at least nine days and were found in different bedrooms.

County Deputy Coroner Lonnie Miley says the two are believed to have died of natural causes, with heat being the most likely factor. He says power had been turned off in the home and that medical issues may have also been a factor.

Animals inside the home were taken to Macon-Bibb Animal Welfare.
