Autopsies Back on Fire Victims

Autopsy results have been released on three victims of a residential fire Monday in Meridian.

Results show 76-year-old Mary Keen and her two sons, 47-year-old Mickey Melton and 36-year-old Richard Wilkinson died from smoke inhalation.

All died in a fire that destroyed their home on 35th Avenue.

Meanwhile, help is being sought from the public in locating relatives of a fourth victim of the fire, who was injured. Officials say Willie Mitchell remains in critical condition at a burn center in Georgia.

A special account has been established, the 'Family Fund for Mary Keen and Sons' at Citizens National Bank, for donations to help the family pay funeral and other expenses. Donations may be made at any branch of Citizens National Bank.
