    "Police would not identify the slain man, saying only that he was 44 years old."

    Curious isn't it... You can be sure that the homeowner's name is plastered everywhere but deep space. The criminal, although dead thank goodness, enjoys almost certain anonymity.

    Well, I guess the crook won't need his day in court. He convicted and sentenced himself.
