Victim Beaten With Household Objects, Fists

The Iowa County sheriff says a homicide victim was severely beaten with household objects and the assailant's hands.

Forty-eight-year-old Robert Delehanty was fatally beaten Sunday at his home in the town of Mifflin.

Sheriff Steve Michek says a witness to the beating was able to give authorities enough information to generate a composite sketch. The sheriff says the victim was specifically targeted. It wasn't a random act.

The suspect is a white male, mid 40s or 50s with no head or facial hair and bulging eyes. He's about six feet tall with a muscular build.
