Autopsy results concluded that the 76-year-old died from blunt-force trauma to the head and face.

Verdicchio’s remains were found late Monday afternoon inside his trailer home in the Pine Acres Manor complex, just a few hours after friends expected to meet him for coffee, say township police.

He was last seen alive attending Sunday services at Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church in Beachwood.

Now they would like to hear from people familiar with Verdicchio at the many local spots he frequented.

Authorities say they include the Wawa on Route 37 and Northampton Boulevard; the News Stand and Charlie’s Pizza in Commonwealth Plaza, Route 37 in Manchester;  the Lakehurst Diner, Routes 70 and 547 in Lakehurst; and flea markets in Columbus, Lakewood and Crestwood Village where he traded in collectibles, coins and sports memorabilia.

Manchester Township Police and the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office are urging anyone who may have seen anything to contact them at 732-657-6111.
