“Tschudy, who was 26 years old at the time of the injury, was reportedly assaulted with a baseball bat by unknown assailants at the time, a case of mistaken identity,” the statement read.

Tschudy’s manner of death was ruled as a homicide due to someone else causing the injury that resulted in his demise.

Although there is no statute of limitations in the case, the coroner's office said no charges will be filed in the attack due to the "inability to identify assailants years ago."
