Alex ZAUCHAPhoto  ( -1965)

Monoxide Kills Two Men
In N. Beeson Ave. House

   Carbon monoxide poisoning yesterday took the lives of two Uniontown men. Killed were Edward R. McCafferty, 56, of 81 N. Beeson Ave., and Alex Zaucha, 42, of 5 MacArthur Terrace.

   They were found last evening in the bedroom of McCaffery’s small house at the N. Beeson Ave. address. Deputy Coroner Andrew Haky Jr. said the men died as the result of carbon monoxide poisoning “probably early yesterday morning.”

   City police said the deadly gas was created from an unvented hot water tank in the bathroom. According to police, three members of the McCaffrey family came to the police station shortly before 6 p.m. and told authorities they knocked at the locked door of their father’s home but received no response. Police wer dispatched in the scene and gained entry through a kitchen window. The bodies of the two men were found on a bed. From the appearance of the room, police theorized that McCaffrey and Zaucha had been drinking and fell asleep on the bed. Due to the cold weather, the windows of the three-room brick structure were closed, locking the deadly fumes in the home. The hot water heater was located near a wall separating the bedroom and the bathroom. There was a small opening in the wall directly above the heater. Police said McCaffrey lived alone in the house. His family resides at 3 Hadden Place.

   A member of St. Joseph’s R. C. Church, Mr. Zaucha is survived by several brothers and sisters including, Mrs. J. William (Helen) Hibbs and Mrs. Stanley (Mary) Krzysiak, both of Uniontown, and Mrs. Thomas (Roberta) Frankhouser, Hopwood. Friends will be received in the Haky Funeral Home, 139 W. Fayette St., today from 7 to 10 p.m., until Tuesday at 10 a.m. when prayer services will be held, followed by additional services at St. Joseph’s R. C. Church, Uniontown.
