Coroner says no foul play involved in elderly couple's deaths

Posted: Updated:

Ellensburg, WA -  The Kittitas County Coroner says no foul play was involved in the deaths of an elderly couple. 

Neighbors called police yesterday after the mail started to pile at their Ellensburg home on Washington Avenue.    

The coroner says the husband died first from a heart attack, but his wife was in ill health and could not care for herself without him.   

She eventually died from dehydration.

Both were in their early 80's.

Families have not been notifed so we're not releasing their names.
