Take the body to your vet for a necropsy, that is the only way to know the cause of death. Anything else is just a guess. It is possible that he died because of the oven. Some ovens are teflon coated and release toxic fumes when heated, and using one to heat your house could produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. Bird respiratory system is very efficient, so anything airborne affects them much faster than it does us (like the canary in the mine shaft). But you won't know for sure without a necropsy.

To prepare a bird for a necropsy, wet the feathers, place the body in the refrigerator (NOT the freezer), and get it to a vet ASAP. The more you wait, the less the vet will be able to tell, because of decomposition.
