The Asheville Police Department (APD) is awaiting final autopsy and toxicology reports before a determination of death may be made in the case of 2 men found unresponsive at a local hotel. These reports could take 6-8 months.

APD responded to a call on June 8 at the Best Western at 501 Tunnel Road for a report of two people found unresponsive. Upon arrival, officers located two men deceased. They were identified as Jacob Bruton Galloway and James Patrick Landreth. The Asheville Fire Department (AFD) was called to the scene for both patient care and for air monitoring. According to AFD, the Best Western does have the required CO alarms. The CO readings performed by AFD at the scene were not elevated at the time of testing. A fire inspection for this location was performed in June of 2018 and again in 2019 based on the inspection schedule with no documented citations for CO related issues. The units in the utility room appeared to be properly ventilated.The Asheville Police Department (APD) is awaiting final autopsy and toxicology reports before a determination of death may be made in the case of 2 men found unresponsive at a local hotel.
