TRAGEDY! Family of 8 killed by carbon monoxide poisoning laid to rest

The images were as overwhelming as the tragedy that stunned this Somerset County town two weeks ago.

carbon monoxide

The family members died sometime before April 6, when police arrived at their rented home on Antioch Avenue and discovered all eight bodies. They also found a power generator with an empty gas tank inside.

Rodney Todd, father, who worked a $10-an-hour job in dining services at the university, had apparently been using the generator to bring power to the yellow one-story home.

Eight identical white hearses gleaming in Saturday’s sunshine in a driveway. Eight white-draped coffins lined up in an auditorium, their lids open to reveal the bodies of victims arranged from the youngest, a 6-year-old girl, on the right, to the oldest, her 36-year-old father, on the left.

A steady line of mourners wore expressions of disbelief, numbness and grief as they paid their last respects to the Todd family, a father and seven children who died of carbon monoxide poisoning as they slept.

“It’s hard to grasp what has happened. Very hard,” said McCain Raymond of Salisbury, his eyes still moist as he stood outside the Ella Fitzgerald Auditorium at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, where six hours’ worth of services — three for the viewing, three for the funeral — were underway.

At the service’s end, funeral workers wheeled the caskets single file up the center aisle, into the bright afternoon sun and toward the waiting hearses. Some mourners sobbed and others wore stricken expressions as the vehicles were loaded, their lights flashing.
