    Investigations into missing person, death cases continue

    Stephen J. Tamburo Jr. of Morgan County has been missing since December.

    In April, the body of a white male was found in the Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area close to the Morgan -Berkeley County line. That body has not been identified.
    . . .

    An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Charleston, W.Va., determined that the unidentified man died about two months before his body was found and that he did not die of natural causes.

    From February 2011:


    A Berkeley Springs man who entered an Alford plea to a charge of first-degree murder in the December 2008 death of his father was sentenced Monday to life in prison with mercy...

    A conviction of first-degree murder with mercy carries a 40-year sentence with eligibility for parole after 15 years...

    The family was hurt by the fact that Tamburo took his father’s life and even more hurt that he buried the body, which was not found until months later... The cause of death was four gunshot wounds to his body...
