CLAYTON — After days of mystery, Clayton police are now saying they think drugs or some sort of poisoning were to blame in the deaths of three people in Clayton last week.

The bodies of Anthony Renquin, Janice Dellefemine, and Joseph Komorowski were all found in the living room of the home at 206 N. Smith Street Monday. There were no signs of trauma to the bodies, said Clayton police Sgt. Jerry Smith

Smith says they are awaiting a toxicology report before announcing a definite cause of death.
