Police receive DNA results from case of murdered Mercer businessman

Posted: Updated:

MERCER, Pa. - Authorities have provided an update into the investigation of last summer's murder of businessman Frank Crash.

District Attorney Robert Kochems tells 21 News that DNA reports from the state crime lab have been returned in the case.

Authorities were only allowed to submit 12 pieces of 90 major pieces of evidence collected for DNA testing. More evidence will be prepared for testing.

Seventy-six-year-old Crash was found stabbed to death in his Hempfield Township home last July.

Crash was last seen as he left the Hickory Grill in Hermitage the night of July 24 after eating dinner alone.

Authorities believe Crash was murdered sometime after 10:30 p.m. Cash's daughter, Pam Higbee, discovered his body at his home at approximately 9:30 a.m. the following day.

Crash died from multiple stab wounds, with the fatal wounds being one to his heart and two to his lungs.

Any one having any information is being asked to contact the Hempfield Township Police at 724-588-7369
