Funeral services were held Monday for a 4-year-old Lincoln County boy whose death remains under investigation.
Lincoln County Sheriff Charlie Dougherty said Troy Damelio was found dead at his family’s trailer Thursday at 850661 S State Highway 18. He said the parents called to report the death and told officials he had a fever for about a week before he died.
From an earlier story:
Investigators were told the parents are members of the Church of the Firstborn in the Parkland community. Dougherty said members are known not to seek medical help for illnesses.
Services were held 10 a.m. Monday at the Osage Church of the Firstborn in Agra, according to the Palmer Marler Funeral Home’s Facebook page.
Damelio’s cause of death is still pending, a spokeswoman for the state medical examiner said Tuesday.

A pretrial date has been set for a former Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper accused of raping a Guthrie woman while on duty June 20.
Patrick Venable, 28, was ordered to stand trial after Special judge R.L. Hert Jr. ruled April 4 that there was enough evidence presented at the preliminary hearing for Venable to face trial in district court on a count of second-degree rape.
Court records show that Venable’s pretrial is scheduled for 9 a.m. June 15 in Logan County. At his arraignment last week, Venable pleaded not guilty to the charge.
