  • St. Paul police are investigating as a possible assault the death of a 60-year-old found dead at the bottom of a flight of stairs.
    A police spokesman tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press Wednesday that investigators are waiting for information from the Ramsey County medical examiner's office about how Uyless Collins died. Police say it appeared Collins was assaulted with a blunt object before falling down stairs in a home Saturday. Paramedics tried to revive Collins but pronounced him dead.
    A man at the house tells police Collins had fought with a 48-year-old resident who was taking food that didn't belong to him.
    Police took DNA samples and items including a metal pipe from the scene.
