[DI] - Northumberland County Coroner Jim Kelley said 42-y/o Troy LaFerrara of Port Trevorton died from multiple stab wounds after his body was found Tuesday morning 2 blocks from the city home he owned. Kelley yesterday would not expound on the number of times LaFerrara was stabbed, but ruled his death as a homicide. A member of the Union-Chapman Township Regional Sewer Authority in Snyder County, LaFerrara was found by neighbors at the rear of 240 Catawissa Ave., near an alley between Catawissa and Fairmount avenues. Police on Wednesday evening found a black Chevrolet pickup truck involved in the homicide at the Susquehanna Valley Mall in Hummels Wharf. The homicide, Kelley said after Wednesday’s autopsy, was “due to multiple sharp-force trauma.”
