EVERETT, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say an arrest warrant has been issued for a suspect in the killing of an Everett man whose decomposing body was discovered last weekend.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Everett Police Chief Steven Mazzie announced Thursday that a warrant was issued for 47-year-old David Grossack, who is believed to be homeless and was last seen in the Boston area.

Officials say Grossack is a suspect in the killing of 65-year-old Francis Brescia, whose body was found in his Everett apartment on Saturday by his landlord. A medical examiner identified several traumatic injuries.

Police don’t believe the killing was a random act.

Grossack is described as 6-foot-2 and about 175 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call Everett police.
