Eight-month-old Jacob Dougherty was also found dead
Police have not revealed how they died or whether the deaths are suspicious.
They have also not indicated how long they were dead for.
‘There’s a lot of unanswered questions that we need to know.
‘We’re doing autopsies right now, so we’ll have some final answers (soon),’ Sheriff Brian Gilbert said on Tuesday.
They have only said that the bodies were found by a snowmobile, outside of the truck, and that it looked as though the vehicle had become stuck on a boulder.
Dougherty had been trying to get it out, the sheriff said.
Autopsies are underway on all three bodies.
Friends of the family are now raising money on GoFundMe to help raise money for the care of the couple’s other daughter.
Police say the couple’s truck was found off of a road in rural Michigan.
It had become stuck on a boulder and it looked as though the father was trying to remove it
