Family announces three more dead from pipeline explosion

Three members of a family who have been missing since last week’s San Bruno pipeline explosion are dead, loved ones declared Thursday.

According to a statement from the Bullis family, the remains of Lavonne Bullis, 82, her son Greg, 50, and grandson Willie, 17, were discovered in the wreckage of one of 37 homes destroyed by a massive natural gas fireball that ravaged a San Bruno neighborhood on Sept. 9.

The San Mateo County Coroner’s Office has not yet confirmed the report, saying it could take weeks to identify the remains found at the destroyed home at 1690 Claremont. However, the Bullis family issued this statement Thursday:

“Though still awaiting final pending DNA results from the coroner’s office, it is with heavy hearts that the Bullis family announces the passing of Lavonne, Greg and William Bullis.”

Not including the Bullis family, four people were killed in the blast.

On Friday, a funeral mass was scheduled for two victims — Jacqueline Greig, 44, and her 13-year-old daughter, Janessa — at Saint Cecilia’s in San Francisco. Elizabeth Torres, 81, and 20-year-old Jessica Morales were also among the victims.
