The cause of death for a father and his two-year-old son was revealed nine months after they were discovered in their Geneva, New York apartment.
The bodies of David Conde Sr., 59, and his son, David Conde Jr., were discovered in an apartment on Hamilton Street on February 15, 2022, according to a news release from the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office.
When they were discovered, investigators told reporters that there was no obvious cause of death and that there was no visible evidence of trauma on their bodies.
Deputies announced on Monday that Conde Sr. died of natural causes related to cardiovascular disease.
The news release says: ‘It is believed Mr. Conde passed away first and the child was not able to obtain any nourishment after his father passed.’
When the bodies were found, deputies told reporters that they were contacted to visit the apartment for a welfare check after there had been no sign of the father and son for around a week.
They were discovered in the bedroom of the apartment, Lt. Joe Murphy said on Tuesday.
