BROOKLYN, MI – Four people died at a weekend music festival held at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn.

Reports from the Michigan State Police and the Lenawee County Sheriff's Department say the four people died at the Faster Horses Festival on Saturday. Investigators say 30 year old Melissa Havens of Croswell, Michigan was found dead around 7:30 AM. A cause of death is still unknown.

Later on Saturday, a call to 911 came in at 1:27 PM regarding five people who were at a campground in Woodstock Township. The Lenawee County Sheriff's Office and first responders arrived and found five men in a travel trailer and they were all unresponsive. More personnel were called to the scene and CPR was administered to the five men.

Three of the men were pronounced dead at the scene, while the other two were taken to an area hospital with acute carbon monoxide poisoning. It's believed the carbon monoxide came from a generator that was near the travel trailer. The names of the five men have not been released by authorities.
