Bodies found in the Carson River are ID'd

Authorities have identified the bodies of a man and woman found Tuesday in the Carson River as Darrell and Kelly Crossman.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said investigators will have to wait for the results of toxicology tests to determine what caused their deaths. There were no visible signs of trauma, and no definite cause of death was determined from autopsies conducted Wednesday, he said. Coroner's officials were, however, helped in their examination by the fact very cold weather kept the bodies in good shape.

The two, described as middle-aged locals, were unemployed and living with family members. Their bodies were found by a hiker walking along the river just south of Lloyd's Bridge. There was a campsite nearby and two small dogs along with their red truck, the registration of which determined their identities.

They were last seen alive over the weekend.

Investigators spent most of Wednesday processing evidence at the site, which remained roped off to the public.
