SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The two people found dead inside a Southwest Shreveport home on Christmas morning have been identified.

The Caddo Parish Coroner's office identified them as 41-year-old Robert Phillips and 38-year-old Amie Duck.

Inside that home, a gas powered generator was found in the kitchen with an extension cord extending to an electric space heater in the bedroom.

Emergency crews at the scene yesterday suspected carbon monoxide poisoning after finding a gas powered generator inside the home.

Caddo Coroner Dr. Todd Thoma says preliminary autopsy results are consistent with that finding.

Police were called to the home in the 3500 block of Baywood Drive just before 11 a.m., after a friend stopped by and couldn't get the two people who were said to be living in the house to come to the door. 

"We received it as a welfare concern," said Detective Chad Dailey with the Shreveport Police Department.

At the scene a woman who was identified as a friend of the deceased could be seen talking with police.

The Shreveport Fire Department says a generator was found inside the home. Generators are known to produce carbon monoxide - in confined areas those fumes can be deadly.

Investigators say they have found nothing indicating foul play, and that the investigation will be turned over to the Shreveport Fire Department to determine whether the deaths could be the result of carbon monoxide poisoning.

The Caddo Parish Coroner's Office will determine the cause of death.
