Too many unanswered questions surround the mysterious death of 28-year-old Cameron Hulet and his 20-year-old wife Courtney. The young couple had just arrived home with a bag of fast food when they collapsed and died in their Michigan apartment. The couple was discovered by a neighbor who thought they were sleeping. When the neighbor returned 3 hours later and found them in the same position, she called the police.
A pound of marijuana was found on the kitchen table, which authorities believe may have played some role in the Hulets’ deaths. No signs of trauma or foul play were found on the bodies. Dave Uhl, the apartment manager, told Monroe News, “It’s really a puzzle. There is no indication as to what happened. It’s a mystery.”
The Hulets’ recently lost custody of their two young children who were removed by Child Protective Services. Cameron had a criminal record with charges including posession of marijuana, assault, and driving offenses.
