A 63-year-old man was found dead in his apartment on Lisztgaarde in Oss on Saturday evening. He was killed in a crime, the police said in a statement.

Family members visited the man's apartment, where he lived alone, after they were unable to get hold of him. They called the police at around 8:00 p.m. Paramedics were dispatched to the scene, but there was nothing they could do for the man. He was declared dead at the scene. "The discovered situation in the home showed that the man fell victim to a crime", the police said. His exact cause of death is being investigated.

Exactly when the victim was killed is not yet clear. The police are therefore looking to talk to anyone who saw him over the past days. Investigators also want to make contact with anyone with surveillance camera footage that may be of interest to the investigation, or anyone who saw anything suspicious around the 10th story apartment or in the building.
