Additional information from Bruce Tanner:

Sadly, it appears that Mr. Bross was murdered in his home. There is a suspect in the case. Links below: Original neighbor who found him said it looked as if he was beaten and stabbed (Jan 25): a couple of days later with no comment after an autopsy was performed, the sheriff was asking for assistance (Jan 29): that the sheriff released a description of a possible suspect [or witness] (Jan 31): got this information from my brother Gavin, Paly '73
