Two people were found dead in a Fairfield, Illinois home on Tuesday, according to local police.

The Fairfield Police Department says Wayne County 911 received a call around 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon about two people in a home who weren't responsive.

Officers arrived at the home on Mt. Vernon Road, where they found two people who had died.

The deceased were identified as 36-year-old Cory A. Baker and 41-year-old Amanda M. Tucker, both of Fairfield.

FPD says the reporter was a third party who called 911 after finding the two in the home.

The police department says that the Wayne County Questionable Death Protocol is being followed, which is standard for unattended deaths, and that the incident remains under investigation at this time.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
