Father, Son Found Dead In Bronx Apartment

Investigators say they found two members of a Bronx family dead on Saturday, although they do not believe a crime was committed.

Joseph Valerio Sr., 85, and his son, 46-year old Joseph Jr., were discovered unconscious and unresponsive in their apartment in Parkchester yesterday.

Police say the father possibly suffered a seizure and died, and his son might have died soon after.

They say the elder Valerio took care of his son, who was mentally disabled.

Neighbors say they would see the pair taking long walks around the neighborhood, but they mostly kept to themselves.

"It's sad because he never bothered nobody, he just went and out of that building with his son," said neighbor Carmen Frazier.

"I was surprised because even though he was older, he looked in good condition and he used to always say he was a veteran," said neighbor Grey Maria.

The medical examiner is working to determine how they died.
