Police are investigating the mysterious deaths of a man and woman whose bodies were discovered on Oct. 20 in Sheepshead Bay.

Police found Michael Huhem and Kimberly Owens, who lived in Texas, dead at 12:44 pm at Huhem’s Emmons Avenue apartment near Haring Street.

Both were found unconscious and unresponsive. Police say Huhem was sprawled on the sofa and Owens, 44, was lying on the floor.

The cops were visiting Huhem for a wellness check requested by someone who had not heard from the 43-year-old and was worried about his wellbeing.

The incident is still under investigation, but a police source said that it does not appear to involve foul play.

The medical examiner is still running tests to determine exactly how the two died.

“Cause and manner of death are pending further studies for both,” said Julie Bolcer, a spokeswoman for the city medical examiner.
