Officials Say Pa. Man, 2 Sons Died Of Asphyxia In Kent Co. Manure Pit

KENNEDYVILLE, Md. (WJZ)– The medical examiner’s office has determined that the Pennsylvania man and his two teenage sons who died in a Kent County manure pit died of asphyxiation.

Glen Nolt, 48, and his two sons– 18-year-old Kelvin Nolt and 14-year-old Cleason Nolt– of Peach Bottom, Pa., were found on Thursday in a pit filled with animal waste on a dairy farm in Kennedyville where they had been working.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner listed “multiple injuries” as an additional cause of death for Cleason Nolt. Maryland State Police investigators say they believe his injuries were caused by a large propeller at the end of the auger that circulates the liquid manure in the pit.

Doctors at the office said all three deaths were accidental.
