A hammer that appeared to be stained with blood was found in the Porsche convertible police believe Philip Gattuso's killer stole after beating him to death with a hammer, according to Oklahoma court records.


The hammer was found on Nov. 2 on the passenger-side floorboard of the car, which police say was in a storage space that Michael Allen Nakvinda rented on Oct. 27 - the day after Gattuso, a 49-year-old dentist, was killed in his south Fargo condominium.
