Murder investigation underway after man found dead inside Ann Arbor home

Neighbors shocked by Richard Fortune's death

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - A murder investigation is underway after a man was found dead Wednesday inside an Ann Arbor home.

Police said the "suspicious death" happened on Lillian Road near Packard Road and U.S. 23.

The victim has been identified as Richard Fortune, 71. Police don't have any suspects at this time, but they're interviewing people.

Officers have been monitoring the home since Wednesday night, when firefighters were called to the home for a medical emergency. When they arrived, they called police to the scene.

Neighbors said Fortune was generous and loved flowers. They said he would set up flower vases outside his house for people to take home.

"He was a chrysanthemum fanatic," a neighbor said. "He had a greenhouse, dahlias."

Police said an autopsy confirmed this as a homicide case.
