He was pronounced dead at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, Florida. The article goes onto say that numerous hand-labeled containers of chemicals were found in the detached garage. The Brevard County Sheriffs Office Bomb Squad was called to the scene which temporarily cleared the property for safety concerns.
