There is a death investigation in Edgefield County. The Edgefield Daily is reporting that authorities are looking into the deaths of two sisters within just hours of one another.
All of this happening at a home on Ridge Road in Johnston. First responders got a call to the house last night about a 28 year old woman who had just had a baby and was unconscious. They took her to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
This afternoon, crews were back at the house responding to the woman's sister, in her 40's, in similar condition. They took her to the hospital where she died too.
Investigators say they have ruled out carbon monoxide as a cause--both women's bodies will be autopsied in Newberry as this investigation continues.
Again, thanks to the Edgefield Daily for their help with this story.
