Emmaus boarding house death is ‘not suspicious,’ police say

The Lehigh County coroner’s office visit to an Emmaus rooming house on Tuesday was to investigate death of a person who died of natural causes, police said.

The death was reported late Tuesday afternoon and, because the person died alone, an official had to be called to the 424 Chestnut St. house to examine the circumstances, police Sgt. Troy Schantz said.

“It’s not a suspicious death,” Schantz said. “This was just natural causes.” He said he could not say whether it was a man or a woman who died.

He said the coroner’s office was on the scene several hours because the proper procedures had to be followed, and it took some time to line up an undertaker.
