More on this topic

Officials are investigating on a case of an unresponsive woman, found dead in her mobile home. The reason for death is yet to analyze, with her clothes on fire, but that didn’t seem to contribute to the cause of her death.

73-Year Old Dead With Clothes On Fire.

73-year old, Elizabeth Grube, found after police reached the Scotty’s Manufactured Homes park. A park for ages 55 and older, to check on her at about 6:45 p.m. Friday.

The fire didn’t spread to the home. But the cause remains under investigation. Northampton County, Coroner Zachary Lysek on Saturday, reported that he is yet to determine a cause or manner of death for Elizabeth Grube, who lived at 140 Robin Ave. Lysek thus added, Grube’s clothing had apparently caught fire but not sure enough if that contributed to her death. He then said that an autopsy and further tests would be necessary to say anything in precise.

Police went to Grube’s home on what Lysek described it as a welfare check after Grube’s family were concerned when they hadn’t heard from her. She was then declared dead at home, where she lived alone, he reported.

Fire Marshal And Forensics Services Responded.

Northampton County District Attorney is John Morganelli. He on Saturday added that his office had not been alerted to Grube’s death. Neighbours in the community said that Grube moved in recently.

The State police spokesman Trooper Nathan Branosky said the township police had requested state police assistance. He also added a state police fire marshal and forensic services unit responded.

But Township police did not return calls. Lysek said an autopsy would be performed on Sunday and with that few additional tests would be needed to confirm the cause of death.

According to the U.S. Fire Administration,

“Older Americans represent a high fire risk group. 13% of the population is 65 or older, and this percentage is expected to increase. One thousand two hundred older adults die each year from fire, the sixth leading cause of death in this population group.”
