DANVILLE, Ill. (AP/WLFI) — A Fountain County man who graduated from Purdue University has been identified as the person who died in a fire in an east-central Illinois house more than a year ago.
The fire in Danville occurred in Nov. 2018, but human remains weren't discovered until October, Vermilion County, Illinois coroner Jane McFadden said Thursday.
The remains were identified as Timothy Duncan, 52, of Covington. McFadden said he died from smoke inhalation.
Duncan was a 1984 graduate of Covington High School and attended Purdue. He enjoyed fishing and mushroom hunting, according to an online obituary posted by Grady Funeral Home in Williamsport.
