Coroner’s Office identifies man, woman found dead in Meadowview house

The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has identified the two people found dead Monday in a Meadowview residence as 34-year-old Kristy Yang and 44-year-old Xau Thao, both of Sacramento.

Sacramento police were called to the house in the 7800 block of Albion Way shortly after 7 a.m. to provide medical aid, but officers discovered the two bodies. Homicide detectives and crime scene investigators took over the investigation, and officers canvassed the neighborhood for evidence and witnesses.

Police have not released any information about the individuals or the circumstances of their deaths. Officer Linda Matthew, a department spokeswoman, said Wednesday that detectives likely will release information after they receive a report from the Coroner’s Office on the cause of death.

The Police Department issued a statement Monday that the deaths appeared to be an isolated incident.
