MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Former Villanova basketball star Howard Porter died from multiple blunt-force injuries, authorities said Monday, but police were still trying to determine what happened in the hours before he was found, bloodied and beaten, in a Minneapolis alley May 19.
He died Saturday night at North Memorial Medical Center.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office said the injuries caused the 58-year-old's death, but no further information was released about the injuries or how they were inflicted.
St. Paul Police Sgt. Paul Schnell said Monday the investigation was still active, but no arrests had been made. When asked whether Porter may have been kidnapped, Schnell said kidnapping was ``a very, very viable consideration in this investigation.''
Porter worked as a probation officer for Ramsey County. Authorities were looking into whether the attack had anything to do with his work.
