‘It’s very scary’: 911 caller facing charges after man found dead inside Millbury home

MILLBURY, Mass. — An investigation is underway in Millbury after a man was found dead inside a home at 303 Millbury Ave.

Police were called to the home around 3 p.m. Saturday. According to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early, another man inside the house called 911.

Early said the man who called police was hurt and was taken to UMass Memorial Hospital. He said that man is now being charged with aggravated assault and battery.

Early said the man who called the police and the man who was killed knew each other, but he would not elaborate on their relationship.

“We don’t have cause or manner of death,” Early said. “The man who was at the back of the house did have some injuries, I can’t get into how he got them. We are so early in this investigation, we’re going to let the professionals do their work, they do a great job, and we’ll go wherever the evidence takes us.”

A woman who has lived next door to the home for 70 years told Boston 25 News she was shocked by what had happened.

“It’s very, very scary,” said Betty Elliott, of Millbury. “There was quite a family with kids and everything. I just knew the people to wave and say hi and that’s it.”

Investigators were waiting on a warrant to be able to search the house.

“I want to relay to the citizens of Millbury that this is an isolated incident and there is no danger to the public,” said Millbury Police Chief Brian Lewis. “The investigation is ongoing.”
