The identity of the second victim of this Feb. 13 body-shop fire in Milford was confirmed today.

ID of 2nd person killed in Milford fire confirmed

More than a month after a body shop fire that claimed two lives, DNA testing has confirmed the identity of the second victim.

The body of Jose Medina, of North Higbee Street, was found on the first floor of the Medina Body Repair Shop on the morning of Feb. 13, according to a statement issued Friday by the Kosciusko County Coroner’s Office. He died from smoke inhalation.

The fire on Indiana 15 was caused by an electrical malfunction, officials said last month.

Annalu Nunez, who was sleeping in an apartment above the body shop, also died from smoke inhalation, officials said.

DNA testing conducted by the Indiana State Police lab in Fort Wayne confirmed Medina’s identity.
