The strange death of Port Richmond bartender Joseph Seamus O’Neill keeps getting stranger and stranger. On Monday, the Medical Examiner’s office announced that O’Neill had died of blunt-force trauma to the head and face and homicide detectives indicated they were following multiple leads.
O’Neill, the bartender at My Blue Heaven on Pacific Street near Castor, was reported missing on Wednesday. His wife and brother found him on Friday in the basement of McWhitey’s Tavern at Venango Street and Mercer wrapped in a tarp.
Adding to the high oddity factory of the case: A half-pound bag of marijuana was found upstairs from the bar.
