Siblings died of natural causes

September 05, 2008|From the Associated Press

The Orange County coroner's office says a woman and her brother found dead in their home under unusual circumstances on Easter died of natural causes.

The coroner's office said this week that 51-year-old Daniel Savage had swallowed three bullets and had black shoe polish smeared on his face -- but he died of a stroke.

His 57-year-old sister Jacquelyn was found with blood on her mouth and bruises on her face and neck. The coroner says she died of heart disease.

The siblings' sister found the bodies when she went to pick up their father for an Easter celebration. Authorities have said the father had advanced Alzheimer's disease and may have lived with the bodies for up to two days.
