MONTCALM, W.Va. (AP) - Police say a combination of alcohol and heroin caused the deaths of three men whose bodies were found in a Montcalm home.

Mercer County sheriff’s Detective Sgt. L.B. Murphy tells media outlets that the medical examiner has ruled the deaths as accidental.

Murphy says the investigation is continuing to determine where the men obtained the heroin.

A neighbor found the bodies of 38-year-old Lesly Joe Hicks; his brother, 52-year-old Joseph Dean Hicks of Bluewell; and the brothers’ great-uncle, 57-year-old Ernest David Hicks of Bluewell, at Lesley Joe Hicks’ home on July 10.
