They got away with murder

DOVER

Robert DeFusco of Dover was only 15 when his father's body was found in Narragansett Bay, with a bullet in his mouth and an anchor tied to his legs.

At first the death was ruled a suicide, but an autopsy four decades later has prompted authorities to change that to a homicide.

Now, family members say if they can't find out who killed Louis DeFusco, at least it's it on the record that he didn't kill himself.

"It would be nice for an arrest to be made, for something conclusive," Robert DeFusco told the Associated Press. "But we realize 42 years have gone by and the likelihood of that ever happening is next to nil."
