Elderly Woman Killed, Authorities Searching for the Killer
NANTICOKE -- Investigators in Luzerne County said a 97-year-old woman was apparently beaten or bludgeoned to death in her home on Thanksgiving night. Folks said Gertrude Price was the nicest neighbor you could hope for, and they are baffled how anyone could break into her home and kill her. When neighbors on East Grand Street in Nanticoke noticed on Thanksgiving night, the lights in the house were on past 11, they worried something was wrong. Price, who lived inside, never stayed up so late.
