NBC Universal, Inc.

Authorities are investigating what they're calling a "suspicious death" in Shirley, Massachusetts.

Details were limited Monday, but the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office confirmed the death took place that day on Groton Road. A man in his late 60s was found dead inside his home.

"He was a great man," said Kara Oliveira, the victim's neighbor.

"He was a great guy. I met him probably like four times, he was giving rides whenever I needed," said Kyle Clapper, another neighbor.

The victim's brother, who also lives in Shirley, said he would routinely check in on his brother and last spoke to him on Saturday.

He doesn't know who would do this to his brother, but he says his brother's girlfriend found him dead on the floor Monday when she went to notify him of a tornado warning.

Massachusetts State Police detective assigned to the district attorney's office are investigating alongside the Shirley Police Department, prosecutors said.
