The body of the victim, identified as 68-year-old Guy Eargle Jr., was found inside the home at 429 Southeast 17th Avenue Monday evening, Fort Lauderdale Police officials said.

Detectives haven't said how Eargle died but said he was murdered. Eargle was a part time resident of Fort Lauderdale and Atlanta.
