A coroner said Wednesday that three elderly siblings discovered dead in a Pennsylvania house two months ago all died of COVID-19.

The two brothers, Richard Kinsey, 70, and Donald Kinsey, 72, and their sister, Ruth Kinsey, 68, were discovered deceased on the property outside Johnstown on Oct. 25, according to investigators.

The lungs were thick and congested, and they tested positive for COVID-19,” Cambria County Coroner Jeff Lees told the Associated Press.

The decision was based on autopsies, toxicology tests, and microbiology exams, according to Lees.

“They were sick people,” the coroner explained.

Authorities were baffled by the case because the siblings exhibited no indications of trauma when they were discovered.

According to the Tribune-Democrat, authorities were looking into the potential that poisonous gas was to blame for the deaths early on in the inquiry.

Lees stated he didn’t know if his relatives had been vaccinated.
