The investigation into the deaths of an elderly couple in McCool Junction has concluded after an autopsy found the couple died of smoke inhalation from a house fire in November, according to York County Attorney Candace Dick.
Neighbors called emergency officials on the morning of Nov. 2 after noticing smoke coming from the home of Charles and Jaunita Bailey, who were both in their 80s.
Responding firefighters found a small smoldering fire
in the living room and then discovered the couple in
the fire started accidentally overnight and was continuing to smolder
when neighbors arrived to deliver breakfast to the couple.
