GREENVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in western Pennsylvania say they are looking at two people in connection with the stabbing death of a Mercer County business owner last summer.

Mercer County officials said the body of 76-year-old Frank Crash was found in his Hempfield Township home July 25 after he didn’t show up at his auto salvage business about 70 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

District Attorney Robert Kochems said in a statement Wednesday that he doesn’t believe Crash, who was stabbed 70 times, was the victim of a random crime.

He said DNA testing from the crime scene matches one “person of interest” in the case and other evidence confirms that a second person was involved.

Kochems said 13 new pieces of evidence had been sent to the state police crime lab in Erie.
