Police have identified a man found dead Tuesday in his Oklahoma City home.

The Oklahoma City Police Department reports at 3 p.m. April 4 officers responded to a home at 4136 Cherry Hill Lane to check on a man who had not shown up to work. Inside the home, police found 79-year-old Beaux McGlothlin dead.

Shock and sadness quickly spread among McGlothlin's friends and neighbors.

"Last time I saw him was probably last week; we went on a walk," said one of McGlothlin's neighbors, who did not want to be identified. "He was normal, friendly as always; came out to the street and talked to us and there was nothing peculiar about it."

Oklahoma City Police say they found McGlothlin murdered inside of his home after he failed to show up for work at McCall's For Men in Downtown Edmond.

McGlothlin's boss, Steve Gibson, said he immediately knew something was wrong when McGlothlin wasn't at work by the time he arrived at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

"Usually if he's going to be late or tied up doing something, he calls and let's us know and he didn't," Gibson said. "Then, about 11 is when I knew something might be wrong and started trying to find him."

Police say McGlothlin had injuries to his body consistent with homicide. No arrests have been made so far in the case.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact the homicide tipline at 297-1200.

McGlothlin's death is considered the 18th of 2017 in Oklahoma City.
