PRINCESS ANNE, MD – Carbon monoxide, also known as the “silent killer,” claims hundred of lives every year. Sadly, relatives and friends say it’s the reason why a father and his seven kids were found dead inside their Maryland home. Police found 36-year-old Rodney Todd and his kids ranging from six to 16 years old lifeless after Todd’s work supervisor asked police to do a welfare check. When cops got to the home, they found a gas generator that was out of fuel, which officials say may have been the source of the carbon monoxide.
