BODFISH, Calif. (AP) — Authorities aren't saying what killed a rural Kern County man who was found dead in his booby-trapped house.
A sheriff's official says Friday that the coroner's division hasn't released a cause of death.
Paul Morningstar of Bodfish was in his 60s. Authorities checking on his welfare last week found his body and homemade bombs, including one that had gone off.
Neighbors tell the Bakersfield Californian (http://bit.ly/1llaq58) that Morningstar set traps because he was paranoid and thought somebody was trying to kill him.
Ted Brummer says his neighbor, who made and sold bicycle repair tools, had other eccentricities. He had no visitors, once called Brummer a murderer for spraying weedkiller and blamed former President George H. Bush for 9/11.
