The victim has been identified as 23-year-old Maximillian Halterman. He had reportedly been living in the cabin-type home, which is across from the McCullough Campground.

A woman who knew Halterman said he was a great guy.

“Too young to go. He was always smiling, always happy,” said Kadisha Wozniak, a friend of the victim. “It’s just a real shame that this keeps happening in Butler,”

State police are investigating the incident as a homicide right now, the Butler Eagle reports.

They are not releasing any other details.
