2 deaths at fire scene investigated as homicides

Posted: Updated:

HAZARD, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say their investigation into two deaths at the scene of a blazing eastern Kentucky home has turned into a homicide probe.

Firefighters were called to a home in the Busy community of Perry County last week. They found a man, already dead, outside the burning residence and later found the remains of a woman inside the structure.

Police said in a statement Friday that the case is being investigated as a double homicide. They said the causes of death are not being released.

Police said the state medical examiner's office has identified one victim as 58-year-old Garfield Herald. The statement said officials are still trying to determine the identity of the female.

Police are asking anyone with information about the blaze to call 800-222-5555 or 606-435-6069.
