Investigation underway after man found dead on Tennessee Ave.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Local police are investigating after a man was found dead in an apartment northeast of downtown Friday.

Around 4:15 p.m., officers with the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the 600 block of Tennessee Ave to do a welfare check on an adult male. This male had not been seen or heard from in several days. Officers arrived and located a deceased adult male inside the apartment.

Because the circumstances surrounding this male’s death are unknown, including whether or not foul play is involved, detectives and crime scene personnel were summoned to the scene out of an abundance of caution. As usual, the Allen County Coroner’s Office will release the cause and manner of death when appropriate to do so.

Crime scene technicians processed the scene, searching for and collecting any potential evidence. They also went door to door trying to locate anyone with any information.

Anyone having any knowledge about the man’s death is asked to contact the Fort Wayne Police Department.

This incident remains under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department, the Allen County Coroner’s Office, and the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office.
