Stephen Covey’s brother found Stephen at his home on Monday around 1:00 pm in the 1000 block of Foster Road. Stephen Covey’s home had a strong odor of propane, and Stephen’s brother was overcome by carbon monoxide when he tried to resuscitate his brother.
Responding medical officials rescued Stephen Covey’s brother and rushed him to a hospital, but Stephen Covey was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. A propane tank attached to a heater was found at the scene, and authorities are investigating to determine if the device malfunctioned.
