Pair found deceased in Greenfield


A male who was discovered dead inside a tent behind the McDonald’s on Route 2 in Greenfield Monday, Jan. 21, 2019 has been identified as Clayton Wheeler, 51.

A female who was discovered dead alongside him has been identified, but authorities are still attempting to locate and contact next of kin to inform them of her passing. 

At this time, no foul play is suspected in the deaths.  The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner conducted autopsies on both decedents, which revealed no trauma or other obvious cause of death.  The official causes of death will not be determined until toxicology testing is completed, which may take several weeks.
