OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- Oklahoma City police are investigating after a 79-year-old man was found dead in his home. They have not said how the man died, but said his injuries are consistent with a homicide.

He was found after the owner of the store he worked in in Edmond said the man didn't show up for work, which he found to be odd. He sent someone to the man's home. When they couldn't get in, they called police, who then found the man's body inside.

"Very warm, giving, friendly. Just millions of friends. He would do anything for anybody," said Steve Gibson. The store owner says his absence has been felt at the store, and says he has no clue who would want to hurt the man.
