EDISTO ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the deaths of two people whose bodies were found in an Edisto Island hot tub.

Police Chief Bill Coffey says his officers were called just before 9 a.m. Friday.

They found 80-year-old Ruth Elizabeth Ellis of Michigan, and her friend, 78-year-old Raymond Trewhella of Columbia, dead in a hot tub.

Authorities say Ellis and Trewhella were in town for a wedding.

Autopsies are being performed to determine how the pair died, but Coffey says the deaths aren't considered suspicious.
