LYONS, Kan. (AP) — Authorities in Rice County have identified the man killed in a house explosion last month in the town of Lyons.

The victim on Thursday was identified as 65-year-old Terry Sawyers. Firefighters responded to the home on May 27.

The fire chief says Sawyers was found dead in the home where he had lived for 10 to 12 years.

Results of an autopsy of Sawyers are expected in July.
