MILFORD — The Kosciusko County Coroner’s Office has confirmed the identity of one of the people who died in a fire at Medina’s Body Repair Shop in Milford Thursday.

A female found by firefighters on the second floor of the structure has been identified as Annalu Nunez, who lived at 310 N. Higbee St. in Milford. Nunez was determined to have died of smoke inhalation.

The male body found by firefighters on the first floor of the building is presumed to be Jose Medina, also of the same address in Milford, police said. 

Medical examiners of the Northeast Indiana Forensic Center determined that the male subject also died of smoke inhalation. At this time, authorities are continuing the investigation to the full and positive identification of Medina, pending DNA testing.

The cause and origin of the fire is still under the joint investigation of the Kosciusko County Coroner’s Office, the Fire Investigation Team of Kosciusko County, Milford Police Department, Milford Fire Department and the Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office Investigators.
