A man and his girlfriend were found dead at a mobile home in East Hall County early Saturday morning.

Authorities were called to the 3500 block of Gaines Mill Road where they found the bodies of Norman Reece, 43, and Audrey Dhal, 35, with “no obvious signs of trauma or foul play,” said Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks of the Hall County Sheriff's Office in a release.

Reece’s 18-year-old son, who lives in the home, found them both in a bedroom around 6 a.m. “after last having contact with them the previous evening,” Wilbanks said.

“He discovered the deceased when he woke up … after noticing that the house had become very cold,” Wilbanks said in an email.

He added there were space heaters in the home, which was without electricity, so Hall County Fire Services tested the air quality but did not find toxic carbon monoxide levels.

The bodies were taken to the DeKalb Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsies.

The case remains under investigation.
