A neighbor discovered 59-year-old Albert Chernoff naked and tied up with severe wounds on his head Tuesday and phoned authorities shortly before 3 a.m., the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. A medic pronounced Chernoff, the president of Alley Cat Animal Rescue, dead on the scene.
Authorities believe he was killed with a blunt weapon in his Rhawnhurst home around 10:30 p.m. on Monday.
Surveillance video released by Philadelphia police on Wednesday — obtained from inside Chernoff’s home — appears to show a person walking around and later washing her hands in the kitchen. She also peers inside the refrigerator and freezer before she finally makes her exit.
