John Lebar, 70, was found dead in a walkway adjacent to his house Tuesday evening in Allentown, according to police.
An autopsy was performed today and the coroner has ruled the cause of death a homicide by blunt force head trauma.
The Allentown Police Department and the Lehigh County District Attorney's Office is investigating this incident.
Rain at times expected tonight, Friday, and early Saturday. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Expect unsettled weather through Saturday morning as waves of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. Some of the storms may bring heavy downpours late tonight and again Friday afternoon.
Friday is still humid but by Saturday much cooler air moves in making it feel more like fall. Sunday is nice with a cool breeze and unseasonably low temperatures which last though early next week.
