A Magic:The Gathering player was murdered in his home, apparently after playing Magic with his “friends” who beat him to death and sold his estimated $25,000 – $100,000 card collection for profit.
William Cormier, 31, is accused of beating Dugas to death Aug. 27 at his home in Pensacola.
Dugas’ cards, valued at somewhere between $25,000 and $100,000, ultimately were sold in Pensacola, Georgia and Tennessee, police said.
Dugas’ body was taken to Winder, Ga., where it was found Oct. 8, buried in a plastic container in the backyard of a home. Now held in Georgia, William Cormier and his twin brother, Christopher, will be returned to Pensacola to face charges in the homicide.
