From Bates County Coroner Greg Mullinax

This morning, 10/29/21 at approximately 0754 I was called to a residence in the 500 block of N. Clark St. in Adrian following a fire involving the residence.

A deceased male was located inside the structure and appears to have been the only occupant of the home. Initial investigation reveals no sign of foul play.

The Missouri State Fire Marshal's Office remains on-scene investigating the cause of the fire. The deceased male was transported to the Bates County Coroner's Office.

At this time I will withhold identifying information pending contact with family. I will provide more information as I'm able.

I greatly appreciate the help of Adrian Fire, Butler Fire, and Adrian Police Department with this morning's incident.
