Crocker fire fatality identified
CROCKER, Mo. (June 22, 2009) — Following a Friday morning autopsy, personnel with the state fire marshal’s office have announced that the person who died in a Saturday morning fire north of Crocker was the person who ordinarily lived at the home.

Cornelius M. Jones, 50, died in a fire at his home at 13375 Blue Jay Road, according to Capt. Bill Anderson of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.

It’s not yet known how Jones died. Anderson said the toxicology report on Jones won’t be released for some time pending additional tests.

Due to the condition of the home — the fire had been burning unnoticed for hours before neighbors noticed it about 9 a.m. — Anderson and the state fire marshal’s office have avoided stating whether the fire is considered suspicious.

“The investigation is still ongoing until we’ve worked all the angles and the possibilities out,” Anderson said.
