GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State Police identified a man found dead in his home by his girlfriend Tuesday morning as David Earl Nunemaker.

Police said Friday they were awaiting the results of an autopsy and toxicology tests on Nunemaker, 22, of 12740 Molly Pitcher Highway in Greencastle to learn his cause of death.

In May 2000 Nunemaker was treated at Chambersburg Hospital for a drug overdose, police said then. Nunemaker was later charged with heroin possession and the arrest warrant alleged that a needle, syringe and vial of heroin were found in his pockets.

At the time of his overdose, Nunemaker was under house arrest for 1999 convictions for marijuana possession and driving under the influence, according to court records. He was jailed for violating the terms of his house arrest, police said.

Police said Friday that Nunemaker's death doesn't appear to have been a suicide.

Police were investigating other leads and searched two Greencastle homes in connection with Nunemaker's death Tuesday, said Trooper Christian Fow of the Chambersburg barrack.

Officers with the state police vice-narcotics unit in Chambersburg, the Area I tactical narcotics team and detectives from the Franklin County Task Force raided the homes of Bradley Lynn Freshman, 3359 Williamson Road, and Troy Walter Rowland, Washington Street.

Freshman was charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, conspiracy to deliver heroin and possession of heroin.

Rowland was charged by Franklin County Probation with probation violations and sent to the Franklin County Prison on a detainer.

A third man, Corey Lee Gordon, 6176 Hager Road, was charged with conspiracy to deliver heroin and possession of heroin.

Gordon and Freshman were placed in the Franklin County Prison after failing to post bond.
