Autopsies slated on bodies of 2 elderly men found dead in central Pennsylvania home


LANCASTER, Pennsylvania — Authorities say autopsies are scheduled Monday on the bodies of two elderly men found dead in their central Pennsylvania home Thursday.

LNP newspapers ( ) reports that police said there were no obvious signs of foul play in the Lancaster Township home.

Lt. Tom Rudzinski of the Manheim Township police department said the cause of death hasn't been determined yet.

But he says a gas oven was on in the home and the men were apparently using the oven to heat part of the house.

Rudzinski says the furnace in the house wasn't operating and there was no running water.

The names of the two men haven't been released pending notification of their relatives.
