SYRACUSE, Ind. (WANE) An autopsy conducted on the body of a 12-year-old boy found dead inside a Syracuse, Indiana home on Saturday afternoon has concluded that his death was consistent with carbon monoxide poisoning, however authorities are waiting for toxicology tests to be completed before they make a final determination.

Two gas powered generators were running inside the home where Skyler Spore was found after emergency personnel got a call regarding a child not breathing and they appear to be the source of carbon monoxide found in the home located at 202 W. Washington Street.

Skyler’s parents and a sibling were home at the time of his death.

The Kosciusko County Coroner’s Office, the Department of Child Services and the Kosciusko County Major Crimes Task Force are all involved in the investigation.

The toxicology tests could take weeks to complete.
