Suicide guns at auction
GREENSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA- A coroner in western Pennsylvania is about to auction off about 100 guns used in suicides and other accidental shooting deaths.
Coroner Ken Bacha says state law says local governments have to sell unclaimed property with the proceeds going to help fund county government.
The office took possession of the guns during death investigations and family members had a year to get them back before they became county property. Some of the guns remained unclaimed for decades.
The coroner says 34 of the county's suicides were by gun last year.
Guns used in murders are kept as evidence.
