Raven, VA – Two local men have died from what police believe is carbon monoxide poisoning
Hieatt said the two men were apparently using a generator to supply electricity for the home they were renting. The police report indicates the two men were working out of town and residing at the house on weekends.
Hieatt said the neighbors reported seeing the generator outside Friday and Saturday but that it was not there Sunday. Investigators believe carbon monoxide from the generator traveled through a vent into the house and resulted in the two men’s deaths.
The bodies were sent to Roanoke for a medical examiner to determine the official cause of death.
