Police: Attleboro Man Beaten, Strangled, Stabbed

Police in Attleboro are saying that Joseph Kilrow, the man found dead in a rooming house blaze, was beaten, strangled, and stabbed.

The fire broke out in the third-floor room of the house on July 10th. While fighting the fire, crews found Kilrow's body in his room, with his throat slashed.

As a result of an investigation, police are now saying the fire was set to cover up Kilrow's death. They have not charged anyone in connection, but according to court documents released Monday,  name Matthew Gumkowski as a person of interest.
