Milwaukee, WI – A 30-year-old woman died from apparent carbon monoxide poisoning and five others were being checked for exposure to the gas Thursday, police said.
Officers were called to a home near 15th and Center at about 2:30 a.m. Police said they found Lisa Buggs dead at the scene.
Those being checked for exposure to the gas included the victim’s parents, a sibling and two responding officers, police said.
Police said We Energies had disconnected the family’s electricity because of an outstanding utility bill. The family was running a gas generator running in the basement.
The state-imposed moratorium for shutting off utility service ended April 15.
