Autopsy Says Fire Didn't Kill Lenoir Co. Man On Thanksgiving

An autopsy says a man whose body was found in his burned out Lenoir County home last Thanksgiving morning did not die from the fire.

Family members believe Roger Baysden may have been preparing the Thanksgiving turkey when the fire started at his Robert E. Lee Drive home.

The autopsy, which was just released, says the 65-year-old man died of natural causes and that the ensuing fire was started by a cigarette.
