Four blows from a blunt object ended the life of a Sandusky man whose body was found Saturday morning in his Wilbert Street home, authorities said.

Detectives believe they’ve found the weapon used to kill 50-year-old John Debski, and on Tuesday they said they have a suspect.

“We have a person of interest that we’re looking at very closely,” Sandusky police Lt. John Orzech said. “We’re still actively trying to put things together.”

Debski’s roommate, Gary Ballard, 40, called police at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday after finding the body face-down on a mattress inside the home, in the 2200 block of Wilbert St.
