Sudden deaths of Long Beach father and son due to natural causes

November 9, 2012 | 11:13 am
Autopsies have determined that a Long Beach father and son discovered dead in what police initially believed to be a murder-suicide died of natural causes, authorities said Friday.

Steven Warshaw, 53, and his father, Lawrence Warshaw, 78, were discovered dead May 20 by another family member in a Long Beach apartment, police said.

Although neither body showed signs of trauma, Long Beach police initially believed the deaths were a murder-suicide. But  autopsy and toxicology results showed both men died of cardiovascular disease.

Police say they believe Steven Warshaw, who cared for his father, died first.

"The father was confined to a wheelchair and was dependent upon his son for care. It is believed he passed away soon after his son," Long Beach police said in a statement. "Homicide detectives are confident at this point that both deaths were the result of natural causes and have closed their case."
