Daily Outrage: Collector dies after beating during home invasion

WHAT: Janitor Homer Marciniak, 77, an unassuming bachelor in upstate New York, spent decades accumulating a $100,000 comic book collection. He died of a heart attack a few hours after being beaten in a home invasion robbery.

WHY:
Marciniak spread the word at comic book shops in the Rochester, N.Y., area that he wanted to sell his lifelong collection and leave the money for his family. Businessman Rico Vendetti allegedly feigned interest and sent thugs to steal the comics.

HOW: The case went unsolved for over three months until a woman charged with prostitution gave information leading to the arrest. Vendetti is now out on $100,000 bail. Another suspect is behind bars, and more charges and arrests are expected.
