Brothers found dead in Henry County home

The bodies of two brothers were found Friday in the trailer they shared in Henry County, and officials said they do not know the cause of death.

Richard Parrish, 61, and Oscar Parrish, 69, both of Lockport, were found dead at their home on River Road at 1:48 p.m., according to a news release from state police.

Henry County Coroner James Pollard said an autopsy was conducted Saturday, and toxicology results are pending.

“Nothing looks suspicious,” said Pollard, who has known the brothers all his life. “It’s very unusual.”

Pollard said there was no trauma to the bodies, and foul play is not suspected. He said it is possible both men died of natural causes.

He said the brothers had likely been dead for several days when they were found by a friend who came to the trailer to check on them.
