WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP — State police in Lycoming County told Newswatch 16 two adults and three children were found dead Saturday at a cabin along Gap Road in Washington Township near Montgomery.
State police say Jacqueline Stackhouse, her 3-year-old son, along with Nathan Reece, and two other girls ages 4 and 9 all were pronounced dead at the scene.
The cabin sits a distance back from the road.
Jan Miller tells Newswatch 16, her son Robert was hosting a group of friends at the cabin. She says at some point he brought the group a propane heater, and went to sleep in his truck outside since the cabin was crowded. He discovered what happened just before noon.
Authorities said the deaths are not considered suspicious and the coroner believes the deaths are a result of carbon monoxide poisoning.
