Coroner: Elderly sisters died of natural causes

The two women were found dead Sunday in a home along Main Street in Fell Township.

FELL TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- The Lackawanna County coroner believes the deaths of two elderly women were a result of natural causes.

Anne Bischak, 99, and her sister, Stephanie, 90, were found dead at a home in Fell Township on Sunday. 

The women's brother was caring for them but he suffered what officials call "an unexpected catastrophic medical event" and was unable to care for the women who were in very poor health.

The brother remains in the hospital in critical condition.
