Police say death of 99-year-old Minnesota man was homicide


Authorities say the death of a 99-year-old man following a home invasion last month in Minnesota has been ruled a homicide.

Police say John Gosche suffered blunt-force injuries to his left arm during an altercation with robbery suspects who entered his home in Crystal on the afternoon of Dec. 2 and demanded money.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office says Gosche died four days later of complications from his injuries.

Police say two male suspects forced Gosche around the house in attempt to find money. They left with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapons were believed to have been shown during the robbery.

Police have not released any information about the suspects but do not believe the incident was random.

    Congratulations! You killed a near century-old man for *possible* money.

    This is similar to another home invasion in Duluth, Minnesota ten days ago. A 30 year old male entered the home of a 70 year old man, hit him over the head and stole a small amount of money, a phone and tablet. After being admitted to the hospital, the victim had a seizure and lapsed into a coma. He died yesterday. The perp is in custody and will soon be facing homicide charges.

    Update - 1/14/2019: The Duluth perp faces two murder charges. One for simple murder. One for murder committed in the commission of a felony.
