February 22, 2011, 7:43 am
The Medical Examiner in Volusia County has come to the conclusion that a woman whose body was found in her Port Orange home died from a stab wound, therefore making her death a homicide. The body of Pamela Corte was discoverd at 869 Nixon Lane by a family member this past Friday, she was pronounced dead on arrival at a nearby hospital. Detectives plan to speak with Corte’s boyfriend of 20 years, Joseph Matassa, who also lived with Corte. Matassa is currently being treated at a hospital after Florida Highway Patrol troopers claim he led them on a “wild chase” in Jacksonville, where he hit an SUV before crashing into a ditch.
The investigation is ongoing and leads are continuing to be followed up. Anyone with information should contact Detective Scott Brozio at 386-506-5894.
