    Jon Matuszak didn’t think twice about going into his residence at 900 Locust around 10 a.m. Monday morning. Matuszak had just returned from running an errand when a neighbor tried to stop him before going into the house. The neighbor told him that two men wearing white gloves and white masks — one of them carrying a baseball bat — had just entered the back door of the house. Knowing his older brother, Patrick, was sleeping inside, Jon Matuszak rushed inside.
