LAS VEGAS (AP) — An autopsy found that the man who authorities say detonated two bombs that destroyed a home and a vehicle in a small Nevada town killed himself before the explosions.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg tells The Associated Press on Sunday that Glenn Franklin Jones shot himself in the head. His death was ruled a suicide.

Jones blew himself up in the Wednesday night blasts, but no one else was seriously injured.

The family of five who lived in the house are OK.

Fudenberg says Jones was identified by fingerprints.

The detonations scattered debris more than a mile in Panaca, a town of about 900 residents located 120 miles northeast of Las Vegas near the Utah state line.
Police in Kingman, Arizona, found bombs and several pounds of explosives in a motorhome where Jones had been living in recent weeks.
