Police Investigate Death Of Man Found Injured In Boston Park

State police are investigating a pair of apparent assaults in a Boston park, including one that led to the death of an 83-year-old man.

Police say Daniel Pepe suffered serious injuries in the state-run Belle Isle Marsh Reservation on May 29.

He died at the hospital on June 1, the same day a 67-year-old man was attacked in the 152-acre park.

Pepe's injuries were so severe he was unable to tell authorities what happened to him.

Police are now trying to determine whether the incidents are connected. The men were injured in the same general vicinity and at about the same time of afternoon.

The second victim described his assailant as a white male in his 20s or 30s, about 5-foot-9, wearing a hat, T-shirt and brown or beige shorts.
