Detroit — A welfare check by police led to the discovery of the body of a 76-year-old man who was found in his room at a senior care facility on Saturday.

Eugene Larkins was found apparently beaten to death in the Warren Plaza Apartments, located at 430 Warren in an area between Woodward and Interstate 75.

“His daughter called on a ‘well-being check’ and that’s when officers discovered the deceased,” Sgt. Cassandra Lewis said.

Police are awaiting autopsy results from the office of the Wayne County Medical Examiner for the official cause of death.
