He Found Them Dead From Gas
February 1, 1892
HE FOUND THEM DEAD FROM GAS.
NEW YORK, Feb. 1.At four o'clock this morning Francis Romeo, a wholesale grocer of this city, living at 526 south Tenth street, South Brooklyn, called two of his employes [sic], Angelo Denaro and Rossorio Valastro, but failed to awake them. He visited the room, and found both dead in bed, with gas flowing from an open jet in the room.
Okay, maybe this one isn't an accident - but it doesn't really say.
And I'm also wondering - in bed together?
Makes it much more interesting, don't you think?
