BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say a Belgrade man whose body was found in a burning car earlier this month died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
The Belgrade Police Department said Wednesday that the June 2 death has been ruled a suicide. The conclusion was based on findings from the Gallatin County Coroner’s Office and the Office of the State Medical Examiner.
Firefighters found the body of 43-year-old Christopher Laxon in the driver’s seat of a burning car in Belgrade.
Police and fire investigators concluded the fire was caused by a mechanical problem with the vehicle and started after Laxon died.
