Two Deaths Investigated


Two dead bodies were found in Gila County during the past 24 hours, said sheriff's detective Brian Havey.

Thursday, the body of a 44-year-old Star Valley man, with ongoing medical problems stemming from a double lung and double kidney transplant, was found at his trailer in Lamplighter RV park, said Havey.

"His former girlfriend went to check on him, but couldn't get him to wake up," the deputy said. "We couldn't get him to wake up. He probably had been dead just overnight."

Deputies also responded to the discovery of the body of a 67-year-old man in Young Friday.

"He also had medical problems, we believe heart problems," Havey said.

Both deaths are still under investigation until the sheriff's office receives death certificates. Havey declined to release the names of the deceased until next-of-kin are notified.
