Investigators say a mother and son found dead in a home in Statesville on Tuesday died of natural causes.
The Statesville Police Department identified the people found dead as 44-year-old John McDonald and his mother, Ann, 79. No foul play is suspected, but police haven’t released what they believe caused the deaths.
They were found inside their home at 720 E. Front St. around 3:15 p.m. by officers who were summoned by someone who discovered the bodies.
Police say the McDonalds both suffered from a history of various medical conditions. No one had communicated with them since Jan. 20.
