WILKES-BARRE -- Police were called to an apartment on Coal Street around noon on Friday after a man's body was found there.
Officials are waiting until his family is notified to release that man's name.
Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said there was blood found in the apartment, and the case is being called suspicious.
A neighbor told Newswatch 16 she last saw the victim Sunday night at a dinner at the Wyoming Valley Rescue Mission.
A friend of the victim came to check on him Friday, and called police.
Friends described the victim as a Navy veteran who liked to spend time at the rescue mission and tried to help people who were down on their luck. They say he allowed a homeless couple to stay in his apartment over the weekend.
"He was a good person, if you were homeless or anything he would let you stay in his house," said Patrick Meininger.
According to the coroner, an autopsy is scheduled for Saturday at 10 a.m.
