BURKE, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police say a man died after he broke into a home.

Police responded to a report on Wednesday of a dead man on the kitchen floor of the unoccupied home in Burke.

They identified the man as 73-year-old Duwayne Masure, of Sutton.

According to WCAX, Masure smashed the glass out of a back window of the home while attempting to burglarize it.  He tried to climb through the smashed window, but was severely cut and bled to death.
