San Bruno explosion: 3 relatives confirmed dead

On Wednesday, the San Mateo County Coroner’s Office confirmed the deaths of three individuals who had been presumed dead in the San Bruno gas pipeline explosion: Gregory Harold Bullis, 50, his mother Lavonne McLellan Bullis, 85, and son William James Bullis, 17.

Gregory and Lavonne were identified through DNA laboratory testing, and William was identified by forensic experts near the Bullis home in San Bruno’s Crestmoor Canyon neighborhood.

Surviving family members were contacted late Tuesday afternoon and advised of the coroner’s findings. The three deaths bring the death toll to seven. The other people who died in the explosion are 44-year-old Jacqueline Greig, her 13-year-old daughter Janessa Greig, 81-year-old Elizabeth Torres and 20-year-old Jessica Morales.
