Prosecutors: Pa. man died of massive head trauma

EASTON, Pa. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Pennsylvania man who died of severe head trauma was surrounded by blood-splattered hand tools when he was found gravely wounded in his home.

Officials are still awaiting the results of an autopsy before determining the manner of 47-year-old Michael Muretta’s death. Muretta was found in the basement of his Williams Township, Northampton County home on Aug. 29 and died later that day at a hospital.

State police are calling Muretta’s death suspicious. A search warrant application says a deputy coroner told police some of Muretta’s injuries could have been caused by a hammer. The application also says Muretta’s hands and arms were bloody.

Muretta’s estranged wife had asked police to check on him because he hadn’t been to work in more than a week.

"State police are calling Muretta’s death suspicious." Do ya think?!? I'm not so confident they'll figure this one out. Might be time to call Psych.

Maybe he bludgeoned himself to death. Looks like the "Keystone Cops" are on the case !

Seems to me it would be extremely difficult to bludgeon oneself to death as unconsciousness would likely occur early in the process.
