Cape Cod Children Aged One & Six Orphaned After Both Parents Suddenly Pass Away After Christmas Due to ‘Medical Conditions’


Two Cape Cod children, aged one and six, have been left orphaned after both their parents suddenly died days after Christmas due to ‘medical conditions.’

Chris and Michele King both passed away during the week of December 27th and are survived by their two children, six-year-old Josephina (JoJo) and one-year-old Miles.

There’s no information on the medical conditions of Chris and Michele and it’s unclear if they were ill on the days before their deaths.

While Bourne Police Lieutenant Brandon M Esip ruled out crime as a cause for the tragedy, he did not speculate on further details.

Daily Mail reported:

Lt Esip said that there is no ongoing investigation and called the event ‘a tragic set of circumstances’.

Massachusetts State Police, Bourne police and the medical examiner’s office reportedly responded to the scene. A cause of death has not been announced and although the family has said they died of ‘medical conditions’ it is unclear what illness the couple had.

Chris was a senior project manager at Atlantic Design Engineers in Sagamore and his wife Michele was a mathematics teacher at Sturgis Charter Public School in nearby Hyannis.

School executive Paul Marble described Michele as someone ‘who has built excellent relationships with her students and colleagues over the past nine years,’ The Enterprise reported.

The Enterprise added:

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with the care, support and future educational needs of the children. Nicole King said in her Facebook post that the two youngsters “have a long journey ahead without their mommy and daddy.”

“Their road will be long and rocky, but they are surrounded by so many family members who love them,” she said.

Ms. King encouraged people to donate to the GoFundMe page, noting that the children have “their whole life ahead, so any help you can provide will certainly make a difference.” By Monday morning, January 3, $94,760 had been donated.

Bourne Assistant Fire Chief David S. Pelonzi confirmed that rescuers responded to “a request for medical aid” for a male patient at the couple’s home last Tuesday, December 28. Rescuers were again called to the couple’s address on Thursday, December 30, for the same reason for a female patient, Asst. Chief Pelonzi said.

The assistant chief did not reveal the identities of the people involved, nor the reason rescuers were called to the home.

“I cannot get into protected medical information,” Asst. Chief Pelonzi said.
