Posted: August 12, 2012

Detectives continue to investigate the beating death of a Philadelphia man found lifeless beside his vehicle in Kensington, possibly after a road rage incident.

Roberto Perez, 41, of the 1600 block of Fillmore Street in East Frankford, was pronounced dead beside his white Chevrolet Suburban at Emerald and Cambria Streets just before 5:30 a.m. Saturday. A window of the Suburban had been broken, authorities said.

Police said no arrests have been made. Investigators have spoken to witnesses and believe the victim was beaten in the head with a crowbar after a dispute with others.

Three men and one woman reportedly fled the area in a champagne-colored Honda Accord and a burgundy Ford Expedition.
