WARREN TWP., Ohio - Police were notified after a man went to check on his friend at 4464 Kincaid Rd. N.W. and discovered the 71-year-old was dead.
Police are treating this as a homicide at this time and plan to pursue leads late into the evening.
The coroner said an autopsy was completed Friday morning but further investigation is needed to determine the cause of death.
"We're going to treat it as a homicide because no one was here. He's dead and we're just going to try to figure out what happened from there. So until we can prove otherwise, we're just going to follow the motions and interview the people we can and see what's going on here," says Lt. Don Bishop of Warren Township police.
