LOOMIS (CBS13) – A third person has died after eating poisonous mushrooms used in a soup at an assisted living home in Placer County earlier this month.
The California Department of Social Services confirmed that a third person has died after eating soup made with wild mushrooms at the Gold Age Villa Elder Care Facility on Horseshoe Bar Road in Loomis on Nov. 8.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office identified the man as Frank Warren Blodgett, 90. He died Saturday in Sacramento County.
The two other victims were identified as 86-year-old Barbara Lopes and 73-year-old Teresa Olesniewicz.
