RYAN TOWNSHIP -- A death is under investigation in Schuylkill County.

State police identified the victim as Gary Marchalk, 60, of Barnesville.

Troopers and the deputy coroner responded to a home on Pear Street in the Barnesville area of Ryan Township, not far from Tamaqua Monday afternoon.

The home belongs to the Schuylkill County Treasurer Linda Marchalk and her husband Gary.

A family who lives next door said police came to speak to them Monday afternoon, but they said they do not know anything about the investigation.

"Most of the time you see people here on the weekend. I haven't seen them around all weekend. Like I said, I was surprised," said neighbor Paul Yost.
