The deaths of two women and the fire that destroyed their home has El Dorado County Sheriff's looking at one possible conclusion.
Without calling it officially a murder-suicide, El Dorado County investigators have said they are not searching for any suspects.
According to the Sacramento Bee, it could be weeks, or even months, before crime lab teams can conclude what exactly happened.
What is known, both Carolyn Hague and Crystal Ann Ward died of gunshot wounds in the back room of the home they shared.
That home was consumed by fire last Friday morning and in its place, more questions than answers as family and friends try to understand what was going on in their lives that it would end this way.
