Texas Man Struck With Bat Dies

ABILENE (August 27, 2014) Abilene police Tuesday were investigating the death of a man who was struck in the head with a baseball bat by his former boss as he tried to force his way into the man's home.

The 36-year-old man was struck on Friday and died Saturday, Sgt. Lynn Beard said.

The victim was a former employee of the resident, Beard said.

The two men argued and then the resident went inside, he said.

The former employee then tried to force his way into the house, Beard said.

The resident’s two children, ages 10 and 15, were inside at the time.

An autopsy was ordered.
