OLATHE, Colo. ” The Montrose County coroner says initial toxicology tests show that a 17-month-old boy and his grandfather died from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning at a home in Olathe.

Dr. Thomas Canfield released the results Monday in the weekend deaths of Truett Simoens and his 72-year-old grandfather, Julian Beamer.

The two were found dead on Saturday in a home that was being heated with propane gas. The boy’s parents went to the home after being unable to reach the Beamers by phone.

Authorities say the home did not have a carbon monoxide detector.

Beamer’s wife was found unconscious and was taken to a Colorado Springs hospital.

Her condition is unknown.
