PULASKI COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The cause of death in an arson and homicide investigation out of Pulaski County has been released. Results of an autopsy and toxicology report by the county coroner have confirmed the victim was killed after suffering blunt force trauma to the head.
As we previously reported, Danny Clark of Medaryville was arrested in Louisiana and put on an investigative hold. He has been charged with murder and arson. The Francesville Tribune reported late last week he has been charged, before the coroner even has a formal identification for the victim.
The body was found by firefighters after they put out an arson at a home near Medaryville in early August. Investigators have been working on a presumed identity, which they won't release until the results of a DNA test.
