According to court records, Mr. Reynolds told police he used his hands to hit Mr. Roberts at the house and then dragged the body to the nearby Norfolk Southern tracks just north of the Anthony Wayne Trail. A train struck the victim about 9 p.m. An autopsy showed the fatal blunt-force injury occurred before a train hit him.
