LEBANON, Ind. — The Boone County Coroner has determined what caused the deaths of a husband and wife in Thorntown last month.

A family member found the bodies of 77-year-old John Gillan and 78-year-old Sharon Gillan in their home on Main Street on March 10.

“We did the toxicology, reviewed a substantial amount of medical records on them and both of their deaths were ruled accidental from carbon monoxide toxicity,” Boone County Coroner Justin Sparks told The Lebanon Reporter.

Sparks called the couple’s deaths a “tragic accident”.

Police are still trying to determine the cause of the carbon monoxide.
