Sterling Heights police said Tuesday that two brothers who were found dead last week in their home appear to have died from natural causes.

The brothers, 72-year-old Donald Minor and 69-year-old David Minor, were found Friday on Delvin Drive by emergency responders who were sent to check on the two after they hadn't been heard from in a while.

Police said there was no forced entry to the home, the brothers didn't have any visible signs of injury and air quality tests came back negative.

An official cause of death is still pending for both of the men, but police said one had heart issues and the other recently had developed medical complications from a fall.
