Villanova legend porter dies from beating

Howard Porter, one of the best players in Villanova basketball history, died after he was found severely beaten in an alley more than a week ago. He was 58. Porter died Saturday night, Minneapolis Police Lt. Kim Lund said. Police were awaiting a report from the medical examiner to determine the cause of death. Porter, who worked as a probation officer for Ramsey County, had been hospitalized since he was found in an alley without identification May 19. Police said it was unclear whether the beating was connected.
