Pa. man's death called suspicious

January 02, 1999

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The body of an 85-year-old man whose death investigators have labeled as suspicious was found Friday, Pennsylvania State Police said.

Earl L. Hykes, of 3610 Buchanan Trail West in Antrim Township, was found on Friday by his brother, Franklin County Coroner Kenneth L. Peiffer Jr. said.

Peiffer said Hykes probably died on Tuesday. An autopsy was tentatively scheduled for today.

An examination of the scene suggested foul play, police said. However, neither police nor Peiffer would elaborate.

Police asked for help from anyone who was driving on Pa. 16 between Greencastle and Mercersburg since last Tuesday who might have relevant information.

Anyone who has information can call the state police at the Chambersburg barracks at 717-264-5161.
