BARRETT TWP., Pa. - Police in the Poconos say a suspected heroin dealer tried to cover up a man's overdose death by hanging the body in a garage to make it look like a suicide.
Chester Botch, 50, of Barrett Township, Monroe County, was arrested Friday.
Police say they were called to Botch's home back in October 2018 for a report of a suicide. Officers found 35-year-old Thomas Bartkovsky of Mount Pocono hanging in the garage.
Investigators said the evidence and scene were not consistent with suicide.
