CINCINNATI – Investigators say they have no suspect and very few leads in the death of a 68-year-old man in his Avondale apartment.
A person performing a welfare check Sunday night found Lee A. Henley dead in his residence in the 3500 block of Alaska Avenue.
At first, authorities said they thought Henley died from natural causes. But investigators later determined Henley’s death was a homicide after officers said they found evidence of trauma to his body.
Many of Henley’s neighbors in the building say they are concerned for their safety after receiving news of his death.
One woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said the building is generally quiet and Henley was an extremely friendly man.
“(When I moved in), he started speaking to me first,” the woman said. “He welcomed me to the neighborhood."
Cincinnati police ask anyone with information in this case to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
