Residents of Decatur Heights were upset Friday to see police and television crews congregating around 956 Sycamore Drive, a house located just outside the Decatur city limits.
Mekka Parish, DeKalb police spokesmwoman, told WSB-TV that resident David Johns, 55, had been found dead of blunt force trauma.
WSB said there were no signs of forcible entry to the neat, one-story brick house near DeKalb Medical Center.
The investigation is still under way.
