Two sisters who were found dead in their Danville home Monday morning died of natural causes, according to the Kentucky Medical Examiner’s Office. “They were cardiac events,” said Boyle County Deputy Coroner Mike Wilder.

Emma Rose (Humes) Corn, 80, and her sister Bonnie Humes, 88, died sometime during the night at their home on Perkins Avenue. They were found by their brother who was checking on them about 10 a.m. Monday, Wilder said. One of the women was a former school teacher and the other one was a former nurse, he added.
