Fort Hall Family Killed By Mysterious Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
When four members of the Parrish family didn’t show up for church or Sunday dinner, other family members became worried. Bill and Ross Parrish, and their sons, 14-year-old Keegan and 12-year-old Liam, were found deceased in their home in Pocatello, Idaho by family members later in the evening on Sunday, February 23.
The Idaho State Journal reports that the family had no carbon monoxide detector in their home. Investigators are looking at a number of possibilities including a natural gas pipeline, a water heater, furnace or stove that may have malfunctioned in the family’s home.
“There is evidence that they knew that they were sick,” Bannock County Coroner Kim Quick told the Journal. “They just didn’t know what they were sick from.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control more than 400 Americans die from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning every year. “The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion,” says the CDC website.
