Prosecutor: Deaths of 2 brothers-in-law found in NJ garage died from carbon monoxide poisoning

Authorities say the deaths of two brothers-in-law found inside a New Jersey garage Tuesday morning was from carbon monoxide poisoning. 

The Gloucester County Prosecutors Office said the apparent accident happened at a property on East Monroe Street in Paulsboro, Gloucester County. 

Family members identified the victims as Lloyd Campbell and Allen Nichols, and said the pair operated a family towing company from the property and worked as mechanics. 

A customer who came to the garage on Tuesday morning found the Campbell and Nichols unresponsive and called for help, according to the family. 


Officials with the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office confirmed the men died from carbon monoxide poisoning. 

People who knew the victims say the family was well known and the business was passed down several generations. 

"It's just a tragic accident," Tyrone Campbell, a family member, said. "Both mechanics, hardworking men, doing this for a long time and they will be missed."

The county medical examiner's office has yet to report a cause of death.
