Death of Johnston homeowner still unknown

JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) - Officials are waiting for results from toxicology and other tests to determine the cause of death of a man found in his fire-damaged house in the Des Moines suburb of Johnston.

Firefighters found the body of Lloyd Kennedy on Sept. 26.

Johnston Fire Chief Jim Krohse (CROW'-zee) says preliminary autopsy results showed no injuries beyond those that were related to the fire. He says it will be at least another week before other test results are in.

Investigators have confirmed the use of gasoline in the home. Two gas containers were found.

Krohse says there was no evidence to indicate anyone had broken into the house.
