Three Greenbrier County men are found dead inside their home near Dawson.
Deputies say the bodies of 80-year old Lacy Osborne, and his two sons - both in their 40's, Michael and Davy Osborne, were found Tuesday.
The Sheriff's department tells media outlets that the men had been dead some 24 to 36 hours before they were found. The cause of death has not yet been determined, but smoke inhalation is suspected.
The fire had burned itself out inside the home. Neighbors who found the bodies said the last time any of the men were seen was just after the Superbowl ended Sunday. They told Eyewitness News that their was extensive damage in the kitchen area of the house, but that it appeared the fire burned itself out before it spread to the exterior.
Deputies and an assistant state fire marshal are awaiting autopsy results before releasing additional information.
One of the victims had failed to show up for a job and a neighbor discovered the the bodies when he went to check on the man.
