The coroners findings contradict comments Tuesday made by the Montgomery County District Attorney.
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman said early Monday morning Bradley Stone killed his former sister in-law, her husband, their daughter, his ex-wife, her mother and her grandmother all before ending his own life.
“Based on what we’ve found at the scene, we believe he died of self inflicted cutting wounds,” Ferman said.
But after a preliminary autopsy, Montgomery County Coroner Walter Hofman says Stone’s only physical wound was an injury to one of his legs and that did not cause his deathREAD MORE: Eagles Fans At McGillin's Old Ale House Disappointed In 'Embarrassing' Loss To Buccaneers
“There is no significant injury to the body. There is no evidence of a gunshot wound. There is no evidence of a stabbing.”
Hofman says they’re waiting on the results of Stone’s toxicology report to get answers into the exact cause of his death.
That report should be in as early as next week.
