Brooklyn Park Couple Found Dead in Lake Cabin, Carbon Monoxide Suspected
Authorities in Mille Lacs County have identified a Brooklyn Park couple found dead in their hunting cabin.
Mai Lee and Moon Lee, both 66, were found dead Sunday night near Isle, located along Lake Mille Lacs. A 911 call from the couple’s son sent deputies to do a welfare check.
The Mille Lacs County Sheriff’s Office suspects the deaths were caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. Firefighters measured dangerous levels of carbon monoxide at the cabin where they were found, officials said.
The sheriff’s office says a small charcoal stove was used and the cabin lacked sufficient ventilation. Officials also say the cabin did not have a carbon monoxide detector.
