LAS VEGAS (AP) — Federal, state and local authorities are still investigating the type of fuses or detonators used to trigger the powerful Wednesday evening blasts detonated by a man in a small Nevada town.
Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee says Glenn Franklin Jones "ignited the devices."
A damaged semi-automatic handgun was found in the rubble following the blast, and Lee said authorities believe Jones it used to kill himself.
Authorities say the 59-year-old man drove a rented car from Arizona to Panaca (pah-NAK'-uh), Nevada, and detonated two bombs at the house of former co-workers. He fatally shot himself before the blasts erupted, according to autopsy results made public Sunday.
Lee said residents Tiffany Cluff and two daughters fled barefoot from the house before the blast. Husband Joshua Cluff and another daughter weren't home at the time.
