'Yankovic's Parents Found Dead'
Tragedy struck on Good Friday for parody musician "Weird Al" Yankovic, when his elderly parents were found dead of apparent carbon monoxide poisoning in their home, the county medical examiner's office told Reuters. Nick Yankovic, 86, and his 81-year-old wife, Mary, were discovered on Friday by family members at their Fallbrook, California, residence. It was unclear how long they had been dead. A fire was still burning in the fireplace and authorities said that the home had filled with toxic fumes because the chimney flue was closed, Reuters reports.
