LATHAM, N.Y. – Police found two dead in a Latham home, and accidental carbon monoxide poisoning is to blame.
Colonie Police say two people, 82-year-old Palma Nero and 77-year-old John Lamena, were discovered inside the home on Dove Court in Latham. They say co-workers of one of the victims called police after they didn’t show up to work Thursday.
When police responded, the garage door was locked and closed with a car running inside. Exhaust smoke could be seen coming from the seams of the garage door.
The Colonie Fire Department forced entry into the garage, and a search of the home revealed the two deceased. The male victim was found in a bedroom, and the female in a hallway.
A carbon monoxide reading was taken by Town of Colonie Fire Services that indicated very high levels inside the residence.
