Police have now identified a man whose body was found Monday morning in Brandywine Hundred in what police are labeling a murder.

Officers were called to the 21-hundred block of Delaview Avenue for a body off the roadway at just before 8 a.m.

Police say 43-year-old Wayne Capelli lived on 4th Avenue in Claymont. He died of blunt force trauma to the upper body. They believe he was assaulted Saturday evening, and that a vehicle may have been involved.
