Luzerne County death ruled suspicious by police

(WBRE/WYOU) — There is a suspicious death investigation out of Luzerne County.

Police were called to the 100 block of East Green Street in West Hazleton just before 5 p.m. Wednesday for a welfare check. That’s where they found a badly decomposing body. Police originally believed the death was of natural causes but after further investigation, they ruled it as suspicious.

“Things inside the house aren’t adding up. At this point, we want to further investigate this and look into some different things that aren’t making sense to us at this point,” West Hazleton Chief Brian Buglio said.

Police still are unsure of the gender or the identity of the body. It’s also unknown how long the body has been there. The investigation is ongoing.

Suspicious death at NH transfer station ruled accidental

AUBURN, N.H. (WHDH) – The death of a man whose body was found at an Auburn, New Hampshire transfer station last May has been ruled accidental, officials said.

Workers at the transfer station found the body of William Bradley, 36, in a pile of refuse delivered to the facility on May 13. An autopsy determined Bradley died of asphyxiation.

The Attorney General’s office said Bradley was likely intoxicated when he entered a large Dumpster in Manchester for shelter, and was still inside the Dumpster when it was mechanically picked up and loaded into a garbage truck.

That truck then emptied at the transfer station.
