Two women found in a rural Blooming Prairie home Tuesday died of natural and unrelated causes.

Arlene Jolson, 76, died on the first floor from a heart-related condition, according to autopsy results. Her daughter, Kristi Jolson, 50, died at the same time of a brain aneurysm upstairs.

The women were found dead at their home at 88793 320th St. in Blooming Prairie Tuesday after Kristi Jolson did not show up to work at Gerard Academy in Austin.
