Two Bodies Were Found In Fatal Ixonia Fire

5/17/17 – It turns out that two bodies were found in a fatal fire last month in Jefferson County. Sheriff Paul Milbrath says that the human remains recovered in the shed fire in the Town of Ixonia were from two separate individuals. One of the deceased has been identified as 61-year-old Brion Downie who lived at the residence. The second set of remains has not yet been identified and Milbrath says additional DNA tests are being conducted to determine an identity. Both a shed and a home on the same property were burning when firefighters arrived about 6:30am on April 24. About two dozen units responded to Northside Road from fire departments throughout the area, along with the State Fire Marshall’s Office.
