The San Mateo County coroner’s office today confirmed the deaths of three more people in the Sept. 9 explosion and fire in San Bruno, pushing the disaster’s official death toll to seven.

The victims were identified as Gregory Bullis, 50, his mother Lavonne, 85, and his son William, 17. The Bullis family was notified of the findings late Tuesday, Chief Deputy Coroner Jerry Cohn said.

Gregory and Lavonne Bullis were identified through DNA testing at the state Department of Justice’s DNA laboratory in Richmond, Cohn said.

William Bullis was identified through an examination by forensic experts of remains found at the family’s home at 1690 Claremont Drive in San Bruno’s Crestmoor Canyon neighborhood.

The home is located near the site of the explosion.

In the days after the disaster, the coroner’s office identified four other victims who died: Jacqueline Greig, 44; her 13-year-old daughter Janessa; Jessica Morales, 20; and 81-year-old Elizabeth Torres.
