Warren Township police are investigating a homicide after an elderly man was found dead Thursday afternoon in a house near the Champion Township line.
Police on Friday said Milton A. Grumbling III, 71, was found at about 12:45 p.m. at his Kincaid East Road home on his living room floor.
Investigators said the man lives alone, and a friend came over to the house after not hearing from him.
“His buddy had been calling him the last couple days. They haven’t heard from him. It pretty much goes into sequence when we talked with neighbors. Last time they seen him was a couple days ago. We do have some information where he was Tuesday around noon,” said Warren Police Lt. Don Bishop.
The Trumbull County Homicide Task Force also was called to assist. An autopsy was scheduled for Friday.
