Death is now ruled a homicide


Such cases are why detectives try to cover the bases when called to injury or death reports, Brock added.

“That is exactly why we processed it like we would a crime scene because we all know, that occasionally, things are not as they seem to be,” he said.

“We are actively pursuing the case,” Reardon said. “There are things going on that we’re not going to disclose because we don’t want to jeopardize the case.”

Brock did say there was “no evidence of forcible entry at the residence” and “at this time there is no evidence of robbery.”

Although police do not know the exact type of object used in the assault, they have “general parameters to work with,” but did not want to go into specific detail about the possible murder weapon or possible suspects, Brock said.

“The important thing is that we processed the scene and nothing was compromised so we will not be hindered in any way in our investigation by the original perception that it was a fall.”
