Coroner: Couple died of natural causes

SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP — Two people found dead in their Winterhaven Court home Sunday evening appear to have died of natural causes, according to the Ashtabula County Coroner’s Office.

David Zullo, 71, and his wife, Janet Zullo, 72, were found dead in their home at 4033 Winterhaven Court.

“There was no home invasion and it was not a murder/suicide situation,” said Ashtabula County Sheriff William Johnson. “It was just coincidental. People in the neighborhood should not feel uneasy.”

Coroner’s Office Investigator Tom Dispenes said both David and Janet Zullo suffered from various health issues and one was the caretaker for the other. A family member requested a welfare check and Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Deputies discovered they had died.

Deputies were called to the home at about 6:40 p.m.

Dispenes said David Zullo was found in the bathroom and Janet Zullo was found in a chair in a different room.

Investigators are unable to pinpoint an exact time of death, but Dispenes said there was mail that had been in the mailbox for about a month.
