Firefighters worked through the morning and returned throughout the day to the scene. In the late morning or early afternoon, the fire scene transformed into what can only be explained as a crime scene as yellow tape was added and deputies and investigators came and went from the scene throughout the day.
There have been no official statements from law enforcement but sources close to the incident have told me that both the death and fire are being further investigated.
