The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has ruled the death of a 99-year-old man following a robbery at a private residence in Crystal early last month as a homicide.
A release from the medical examiner's office said John Mathias Gosche of Crystal died on Dec. 6 as a result of sepsis complicating blunt force injuries on his left arm. A release from Crystal police said those injuries were sustained when the suspects in a robbery days earlier at his residence on the 4100 block of Colorado Avenue North forced him around the house in an attempt to find money.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Crystal police at 763-531-1020.
