Police: Woman beaten to death in random home invasion

Published: November 29, 2013

NANTICOKE — A 97-year-old woman was killed in an apparently random home-invasion robbery on Thanksgiving night, according to state police.

The body of Gertrude Price, was found in her 23 E. Grand St. home by her family Friday morning, Trooper Martin Connors said. No arrests have been made.

“I know a lot times we say there is no cause for concern because it doesn’t look random,” Connors said. “This, unfortunately, is exactly the opposite of that. It looks as if this poor lady, 97 years old, lived her whole life and has to leave this world this way.”
