The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has determined that the death of the female discovered at Cedar Lane earlier this week was due to natural causes. There has yet to be a ruling on the death of the male that was also found at the residence, as officials are conducting further forensic studies.
The police are still investigating the incident.
Police were called to 27 Cedar Lane at 2:57 p.m. on Wednesday, for a welfare check, after newspapers began accumulating outside of the home. Finding the home secure, the officers called for the fire department to help gain access to the home.
Once inside, the officers found two bodies, one male and one female. The bodies were transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for further examination.
Police officials have yet to identify the deceased.
“They’re not ruling anything out right now,” said Police Spokesman Sgt. Jeff Dobratz. “They’re waiting on word from the Chief Medical Examiner.”
The Southington Fire Department tested the interior of the home for carbon monoxide and other hazardous gases before emergency personnel entered the home. No elevated levels were found.
