2 men found dead in Lancaster Twp. home without heat, running water
LANCASTER TOWNSHIP (WPMT)-Two elderly men were found dead inside of a home on the 500 block of South West End Avenue in Lancaster Township Thursday evening.
Authorities were alerted to the scene after a family member went to check on the men around 5 p.m. after not seeing them for two weeks, police said. The relative found both men dead inside.
The home heating system was not running and there was no running water, according to police reports. Authorities said a gas oven was heating part of the house.
Police said there were no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
Right now, it’s not known if the lack of heat in the home played a role.
