A bizarre story out of northern Vermont began to unfold Wednesday night after police were alerted to a man found dead inside the kitchen of an unoccupied house in Burke.

Authorities say the man, identified as 73-year-old Duwayne Masure of Sutton, broke into the home and was preparing to burglarize it, but didn't get very far. Masure cut himself on glass shards while climbing in through the back window and subsequently bled to death.

The investigation is said to be ongoing which is good, because I have more than a couple of questions.
