Slain Society Hill dentist Stephen Grosse was drunk at the time of his murder, with tests showing his blood-alcohol level was enough to prevent him from fending off his attacker, authorities said yesterday.
Toxicology tests show that Grosse, 44, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.15, which is 50 percent above the legal limit of 0.10, said Montgomery County Coroner Halbert Fillinger.
Tests are not complete on whether Grosse had any drugs in his system when he died, Fillinger said.
``The whole thing is kind of mysterious. There's a lot more looking to do,'' Fillinger said.
