Officials find relative of dead Muncie siblings

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Officials say they’ve been able to find a relative of a Muncie man killed during a bicycle ride and his sister who was found dead in her apartment.

Delaware County Coroner Scott Hahn says his office was able to locate a cousin of Rodney and Truly Stines through an old obituary.

Police say 68-year-old Rodney Stines died Sunday when he rode his bicycle into a car’s path at a road crossing for the Cardinal Greenway trail. A deputy coroner found 69-year-old Truly Stines dead in her Muncie apartment Monday while trying to notify her about her brother’s accident.

Hahn tells The Star Press that Truly Stines likely died last week. Hahn says her cause of death won’t be determined until toxicology tests are completed.
