The third of three people whose bodies were found in a Long Beach apartment where they were apparently overcome by carbon monoxide fumes was identified Monday.

The bodies were found in a state of decomposition last Monday when police conducted a welfare check on an apartment in the 1100 block of Gardenia Avenue in Long Beach.

They were found near a propane heater meant for outdoor use.

The coroner’s office identified the third person on Friday as Jonathan Lee Lolley, 36, of Long Beach. Albert Salazar, 51, of San Pedro and Jamie Ballantyne, 34, from Long Beach were identified earlier.

A coroner’s official said he did not know the relationship of the two men and woman. According to the Press-Telegram, the three had moved into the apartment only recently.

While police and coroner’s officials said it appeared the cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning, toxicology tests were still being done on all three bodies to confirm the cause of death.
