SELDEN, N.Y. (AP) - Police on eastern Long Island are investigating

whether carbon monoxide fumes from a generator may have led to the death

of a Selden man.



Homicide detectives say the 61-year-old man was found dead inside his

home on Thursday afternoon. A contractor doing repairs from a weekend

fire found the man dead inside a bedroom.



Detective Sgt. William Lamb says an outside generator was being used

to provide electricity to the home, and may have been placed too close

to a laundry vent that allowed fumes to seep inside.



He said officials found carbon monoxide levels were nearly 100 times

greater than what is normally considered safe. But he said an autopsy

would determine the cause of death.



Police say the victim, identified as Thomas Melideo, lived alone.<a href="http://www.wcax.com/Global/story.asp?S=12243700">http://www.wcax.com/Global/story.asp?S=12243700</a>
