Tragic: Husband Finds Wife and Her Mechanic Lover Both Dead from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning After They Had Sex in the Garage [Video]

A New Jersey man came home Monday night to find both his wife and her lover dead in the garage.

The two died of carbon monoxide poisoning while having sex.

via People:

Kahali Johnson said he returned home that night and smelled a strong odor coming from the garage of his apartment, according to WABC. So, he went to investigate, WABC reported.

In the garage, Johnson said he found his wife, Tameka Hargrave, and their mechanic near a running vehicle.

“As I tried to step to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he’s laid out,” Johnson told the station. “She’s just a few feet away, she’s laid out. And pretty much I had to call 911 because, at this time, with that level of emissions, I knew that they were gone.”

Sources told KXAS that Hargrave, 39, and the unnamed mechanic, 59, were allegedly having sex in the car when they succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning. Law enforcement sources reportedly told the station that Hargrave had allegedly been having sex with the mechanic in exchange for his car work.

The Newark Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene and police said the deaths appeared to be accidental, NJ.com reported. Newark Fire Division evacuated the building, and one person was taken to a local hospital, according to the publication.

As for Johnson, the grieving husband told WABC that he blames the apartment complex.

“Basically she died because of carbon monoxide,” Johnson said. “They do not have adequate alarm systems, because if there had been an alarm in that garage, people would have been alerted to the fact that it was going on.”

Sad.

From Garage to HGTV: How This Woman Grew a Successful Home-Staging Business

Kristy Anderson spent most of her childhood on the move.

She and her mother, Bridget, would often change apartments. And Anderson, in an attempt to make each place feel more like home, would spruce it up with some amateur decorating.

She would rearrange some pillows. Or maybe she’d take some bedsheets and turn them into curtains.

“My mom always welcomed it,” Anderson said. “She was very encouraging.”

Nobody knew it at the time, but what she was doing was making her way toward building her own business.

A New Path

A resident of South Tampa, Anderson, 41, is the founder and executive director of Dwell Home Staging, which specializes in getting homes ready to hit the open market. She employs a staff of eight, including her husband, Marc, the company’s operations manager. Four months ago, she sold the business to appliance chain Happy’s Home Centers.

Dwell has been featured on HGTV and is repeatedly ranked among the top home-staging businesses in the country.

“Never in a million years did I ever imagine this,” Anderson said.

Anderson took a stab at acting before landing a teaching position 12 years ago at Academy Prep of Tampa, a non-profit school for middle school students. Eventually, she was named the assistant head of school. Anderson had an apartment on scenic Davis Island, located right near downtown Tampa, and was pulling a solid salary.

“I thought I was going to be in education forever,” she said.

On the side, however, Anderson was still dabbling in decorating. She worked 10 hours a day at Academy Prep of Tampa and then spent the night staging homes for her friends. It was fun. But she figured it was just a side gig.

“It was a real small-time,” Anderson said. “I would just go into people’s homes, re-design or revamp it, and maybe bring a few new pieces in.”

Starting Her Own Business

One day, Anderson decided she no longer wanted to work in education. She took $ 3,000 out of her savings account and created an office out of her garage — from there, Dwell Staging was born.

Anderson’s aspirations were modest — she never thought staging homes would match the $ 65,000 a year she was making as an assistant head of school. So she planned on making a living as a real estate agent.

But Dwell continued to grow.

Anderson built her client base through word of mouth and friendly referrals, as well as through Google Adwords, an online advertising site. She created a Facebook page, which she routinely updates with videos of homes she has recently staged, and a Twitter account. She joined local associations for homebuilders, investors and realtors and visited realtors to give in-person presentations.

Anderson also hosted broker’s opens, which are strictly for real estate agents and not for the public, in homes she had staged.

The ad campaign worked — Anderson became so busy running Dwell that she no longer had time to pursue her real estate license.

“That’s when I said, ‘I guess this is what I’m doing,’” she said.

Purchasing her inventory wholesale from furniture and accessory vendors from across the United States, Anderson needed just six months to take Dwell from her garage to a storage facility. A year later, it moved into a 2,000-square-foot office and warehouse; the company now operates out of a 9,000-square-foot facility.

When she’s staging a home, Anderson considers her true clients to be the home’s potential buyers, not the current owners.

“We always design for the target demographic of the expected buyer,” Anderson said. “This is the first indicator for our design.  Then we look at the home’s architecture and design, and select pieces that highlight that.  If it’s occupied, we try to use as much of what the seller has as possible, while using our inventory to supplement in order to pull together a cohesive look.”

Dwell will keep a home staged for 30 days (at a cost of between $ 1,500 and $ 2,880) or 60 days ($ 2,010 and $ 3,968) and offers additional monthly packages after the initial contract has expired. Dwell also offers free real estate photos for vacant homes with four rooms or more.

It’s a process that seems to be working. Dwell has had an increase in revenue each year, bringing in $ 180,000 during its first year and close to $ 500,000 last year.

Though Happy’s Home Centers now owns Dwell, Anderson still runs the daily operations and hopes to branch out into other markets such as Orlando and Sarasota.

“That’s the ultimate vision,” she said. “But we still want to be the top staging business in the Tampa Bay area and do things more efficient [sic] and better than anyone else.”

Anderson always dreamed on landing on HGTV — that dream came to fruition when Dwell designed a space for the show “Container Homes” with the help of artists from the Tampa Bay community.

“I’d watch all those shows on HGTV and would dream —‘Wouldn’t that be great?’” she said.

And Anderson knows who to thank for success — her mother Bridget, who passed away last May.

“She was always saying, ‘Just say yes,’ and, ‘Why not you?’” Anderson said. “She kind of ingrained it in me to take big risks. Why couldn’t it be me?”

A Guide to Selecting the Right Garage Heater for Your Home

Whether you’re hoping to use your garage for some mid-winter carpentry projects or as another place to work out when bad weather strikes, you’ll probably find the experience a lot happier if you have some heat in the space. And that means wading through a whole lot of options! Portable or fixed? Electric, propane, kerosene, diesel or solar? Forced-air, convection or radiation? The amount of variety out there is truly dizzying.

To help, we’ve created a “keep it simple” guide to garage heating basics. Below, we’ll touch on the different factors you need to weigh when you’re picking out heaters. And we’ll run over the types that work best for garages. Basically, it’s the fastest route to a more comfortable garage this winter.

Portable or Not?

The first thing you need to decide is whether or not to go portable. Mobile space heaters are simple to install—many simply need to be plugged in. Unfortunately, floor-level space heaters are also not as safe. All those cords present a real tripping hazard in a garage, where you’re likely working with lots of tools. And that may cause fires and injury if the heater is accidentally tipped over.

On the other hand, portable space heaters cost a lot less. Mounted forced air units could run you as much as $ 1,000 apiece, but you can find quality portable heaters for less than $ 100. For professional-grade units, portable forced-air shop heaters—often known as salamander heaters—can be bought for between $ 100 to $ 200.

In the end, the decision usually comes down to how often you use your garage, as well as its size. Portable space heaters make more sense for casual garage-users, whereas a mounted forced-air system is better if you’re out there every day.

Types of Heaters

There’s also the matter of the heat source itself. Heaters can be powered by electricity or solar heat. They can also be fueled with some sort of gas, like natural gas, propane, kerosene, or diesel.

Combustion heaters like these latter types are typically more powerful and efficient than electric and solar heaters. But they must be used with care. Otherwise, the results could be tragic, since fuels are highly flammable.

Additionally, some products may not be suitable for insulated indoor spaces because they could generate fumes, carbon monoxide, and water vapor. Typically, “suitable for indoor use” means they have some sort of ducting system that directs fumes outdoors.

Forced-air, Infrared/Radiant, and Convection Heat: What’s the Difference

Beyond fuel source, you’ll also need to consider how the unit distributes heat. Here’s a summary of the differences:

  • Forced-air: Forced-air systems contain an internal fan that blasts hot air into the surrounding area. This makes them a lot more powerful than your average electric space heater. But they may stir up dust and sawdust as well. Some forced-air systems also rely on a secondary combustible fuel source, too.
  • Infrared or Radiant: Infrared and radiant units essentially allow heat to radiate outwards from the source, similar to a fireplace or campfire. They work best in small spaces because they’re usually not very powerful.
  • Convection: Convection heaters are designed to move air currents using the power of convection—aka, the physical principle that hot air rises and cool air sinks. Cold air beneath the unit is drawn over the heating source and then pushed out of the unit. Once it cools again, it cycles back through the unit. This process makes convection heaters much safer and efficient than other heaters.

Size and Power

Certain types of heating systems are naturally more powerful than others. But the size of your unit and its capacity will ultimately determine how warm your garage gets. All heaters list their heat capacity in British thermal units (BTUs).

But bigger doesn’t always necessarily mean better in this case. If you have a very small workspace, the average residential central heating capacity of 30,000 or 45,000 BTUs is going to be too powerful. You don’t want to be sweating over your power tools, after all.

To decide on the right capacity, you can manually size the heater using the garage square footage, ceiling height, and insulation. Or you can simply refer to manufacturer’s guidelines. Modern heaters typically do these calculations for you. So they’ll tell you how many square feet you can expect to reliably heat, given an eight-foot ceiling height—the standard for most garages.

Now that you know the basics of garage heating, you’re ready to go forth and conquer that new woodworking project with confidence—or at least without stiff, frozen fingers!
