An elderly Delaware County man was beaten to death in his Lansdowne apartment, according to findings released today by the Delaware County Medical Examiner's Office.
The body of 70-year-old Murray Joseph Seidman was discovered around 4 p.m. yesterday and he was pronounced dead on scene. Police said he was dead for at least five-to-ten days before his body was discovered by a friend.
In an autopsy performed today, the Medical Examiner determined Seidman's death was a homicide and that he died of multiple blunt force injuries to his head while inside of his home on Lansdowne Avenue near Violet Lane.
Police have not released a suspect or a motive in this case, which is Delaware County's first homicide of the year.
