Man Gets Stabbed, Takes 50 Years To Die

Antonio Ciccarello, a retired porter, died in September at the age of 97. On the surface there is nothing remarkable about a man his age dying but an autopsy concluded Mr. Ciccarello's death was a homicide.  More than a half century earlier he was stabbed on the way to work.  The medical examiner connected Ciccarello's death from complications from a bowel obstruction to an earlier hernia and that hernia to the stabbing.

It's unlikely that a police investigation is forthcoming.
