PITTSFIELD (CBS) – A man wanted for murdering an Everett artist last month was arrested Tuesday in Western Massachusetts.
On Tuesday around 1:30 p.m. Pittsfield Police arrested Grossack, who is homeless.
Police discovered Brescia’s decomposing body on February 25 after a well-being check from neighbors who noticed a strong odor.
Brescia, who struggled with addiction and homelessness, became a painter and was profiled in the Boston Globe last January. His pieces of art sometimes sold for over $1,000.
Grossack is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Berkshire District Court.
