Police: Brothers Likely Died Of Natural Causes

STERLING HEIGHTS (WWJ/AP) – Police say two brothers found dead last week in the metro Detroit home they shared appear to have died of natural causes.

The bodies of 72-year-old Donald Minor and 69-year-old David Minor were found March 8 inside their home on Delvin Drive, near 19 Mile and Clinton River roads in Sterling Heights. Police say emergency workers found the bodies after receiving a call from concerned neighbors who wanted officers to check on the brothers.

Investigators say there were no signs of forced entry to the home. They also said the brothers didn’t have any visible signs of injury.

An official cause of death is pending, but police say the men had health issues.
