Edgewood, PA-A homeowner near Pittsburgh blew up his house on his daughter’s wedding day, police said shortly after his body was found in the rubble.
The man had been seen standing in front of his house in Edgewood shortly before it exploded and caught fire. His death has been ruled a suicide.
Officials are still investigating the explosion’s cause, but Police Chief Robert Payne said, “It looks like he disconnected the gas line in the basement of the house. And of course it wouldn’t take much of a spark to explode the house.”
Most of the family was out of the house at the time for the wedding.
