The last person to see University of Pennsylvania student Blaze Bernstein alive was visibly nervous upon being interrogated by police about the mysterious death and had scratches on his hands, The Mercury News reported.
The information comes from an affidavit in the case, which is being investigated as a potential homicide.

It was a chaotic scene at a funeral viewing in Ohio on Monday after the deceased man’s girlfriend showed up.
The New York Daily News reported that Nicole Corbitt walked into the service revealing herself to be the mistress of the man who had recently passed away. The widow, Jacqueline Finley, became visibly upset, WEDN reported. She told the girlfriend to leave. An argument erupted and Corbitt allegedly punched Finley’s daughter, Shyla Cooks, in the face. Finley told officers that the attack was “unprovoked.”
From there, a brawl broke out and Finley, her daughter, Corbitt and other women began to fight.
Funeral home employees tried to break up the fight with no success. It all finally ended when Finley pepper sprayed the group of women.
Nobody was seriously injured. No arrests have been made.
The Daily Mail reported that the man whose death was being mourned was 70 years old.

Five people were charged with murder after two Colorado teens were found dead along the side of a rural road, police said on Thursday.
Gustavo Marquez, 19, allegedly confessed to investigators that Natalie Cano-Partida, 16, and Derek Greer, 15, were kidnapped in March and shot multiple times by two other men at close range, the Associated Press reports.
Marquez reportedly said that one of his co-defendants, Diego Chacon, shot Cano-Partida, and another defendant, Marco Antonio Garcia-Bravo, shot Greer with the same gun.
Garcia-Bravo offered the 16-year-old girl a chance to say goodbye to her family via Facebook, but then snatched back the phone, telling her she was taking too long and had lost her chance, according to Marquez’s account.
Marquez was arrested a week after the killings, after an officer found him disrupting traffic while walking on a median. Marquez allegedly then told an officer that he had information about the teens.

Police are looking for a Florida man after he allegedly doused his pregnant girlfriend in gasoline and lit her on fire after an argument over cigarettes.
Noel Grullon, 32, allegedly lit the 27-year-old woman on fire in front of her two children on Thursday, according to Yahoo. The victim suffered second degree burns to her torso. It took her hours to admit to police that the burns came from her boyfriend, who is the father of her unborn baby.
“It took most of the day for her to finally admit to a social worker what had really happened to her. At first she was saying it was a barbecuing accident,” Hialeah Police Sgt. Carl Zogby told CBSNews.
According to an NBC affiliate, Grullon has a violent criminal past, with past charges that include armed robbery, armed carjacking, kidnapping and aggravated battery.

Christopher Charles Watson, 28, was arrested Saturday for a felony charge of domestic child abuse.
“It is fortunate this kid didn’t end up in the wrong hands of someone,” Trish Carter of the Arizona’s Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, told People. “There are many predators out there these days. Luckily we didn’t have a major, sad ending.”

The Chris Brown vs. Soulja Boy fight was officially canceled a few weeks back, but that doesn’t mean the beef has been squashed — not in Soulja’s eyes, anyway. The rapper has continued to publicly take shots at Brown over what happened, even dissing him on stage last weekend, Hip Hop DX reports.
“Chris Brown backed out the flight like a little b*tch, man,” Soulja said during a show in Minneapolis. “He scared to get in the boxing ring with little ol’ me. I was gonna knock Chris Brown b*tch ass out, n—a.”
Brown responded in the comments section of an Instagram video of Soulja huffin’ and puffin’ on stage, explaining his point of view as well as telling fans what really went down.
