Womens' mysterious deaths blamed on heart condition, brain aneurysm


BLOOMING PRAIRIE, Minn. (KTTC) -- Preliminary autopsy results in the mysterious deaths of two women from rural Blooming Prairie show they died of two separate health conditions.

Freeborn County Sheriff Bob Kindler says the autopsy results show that Arlene Jolson, 76, died from complications of a heart-related condition.  Her body was found on the first floor of the home at 88793 320th Street southwest of Blooming Prairie.

The body of Kristi Jolson, 50, was found in an upstairs bedroom.  Sheriff Kindler says preliminary autopsy results show she "coincidentally died within the same time period of a brain aneurysm."

Carbon monoxide poisoning has been ruled out as a cause of death.

"With the determination of the cause of death, no further investigation is warranted," said Sheriff Kindler in a statement emailed to reporters.  "The house has been released back to the family."

Toxicology results from the autopsies are not yet available from the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office.
