MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) -

Middletown police identified a man found dead inside of his home Wednesday morning as 60-year-old Donald Miller.

Authorities responded to the 1700 block of Texas Avenue just after 10 a.m. for a report that the house was "torn up and bloody," and the resident was inside but unresponsive.

Police said friends had gone to check on Miller after they were unable to reach him for several hours. Upon entering the house they called police.

The Butler County Coroner's Office has ruled the incident as a homicide following an autopsy. Middletown detectives said there were signs of a struggle inside the home, and Miller was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the investigation is continuing as detectives continue processing the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Hoover with the Middletown Police Department at (513) 425-7796.
