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.
