Police in Lancaster, Ohio, are calling the discovery of a body early Sunday morning a homicide, after a neighbor went to check on a resident next door. The unidentified woman, 70, lived alone in her apartment next to the 79-year-old man’s house and when he did not show up for work on Saturday morning, his neighbor called the police. When officers went to the house around 5 a.m. Sunday, they found the 79-year-old’s body, with his keys and wallet nearby. The police said the victim may have been tied up, but no suspects were in custody.

The dead man was a big fan of the FBI, something his neighbors were particularly shocked by. “He was very, very good at FBI impersonating. He was very good,” said neighbor Lisa Gates. She described the elderly man as a nice man and a member of an obituary staff, who also knew most of the families on his street.

“They didn’t know he was a fugitive,” added another neighbor, James Morin. “He was doing real well the last few years. He was just very nice.”
