SANTA CRUZ (AP) — Authorities say three people have been found dead inside a mobile home in the Santa Cruz area of northern Santa Fe County.

County Sheriff's officials say deputies went to the home around 6 p.m. Tuesday after a report of a heavy smell of gas fumes.

They say the bodies of two adults were found in the kitchen and the body of a child was discovered in the bathtub.

A Sheriff's Office search warrant affidavit identified the three dead as 39-year-old Dominic Mansanarez, 19-year-old Isa

Mansanarez and 9-year-old Ventura Mansanarez.

Authorities say it's unclear what caused the mobile home to fill with gas.
