    What killed a pair of roommates?

    Nearly two months after two men were found dead in their home, the coroner has ruled on what killed them.

    Chadd Wirth, 43, and Curtis Warmkessel, 32, died of accidental overdoses, according to the Lehigh County Coroner's Office.

    The roommates were found dead Oct. 2 inside their house on E. Long Street in Allentown, Pa.

    An initial autopsy into their deaths was inconclusive pending toxicology.

    Officials said autopsies, but a ruling on the cause of death was pending further toxicological testing.

    On Thursday, Coroner Scott Grimm announced both men died from "a mixed drug overdose."

    Grimm said there was no foul play or suspicious circumstances around the deaths.
