    Police made a gruesome discovery in a third floor apartment in South Philadelphia’s Bella Vista neighborhood just after midnight.

    Officers responded to a 911 call to the apartment on 8th and Christian Sts. and found a 30-year-old man bloody, face down on the floor of his bedroom, police told NBC10’s Tim Furlong.

    Investigators say that there was a large amount of blood on the wall as well as the floor around the victim.

    “There’s also signs of a struggle because a flat-screen TV, a table and other furniture are flipped over,” Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

    A police source identified the victim as Michael J. Fox.

    Fox died from blunt force trauma to the head, according to police. He was last seen alive at 3 p.m. Wednesday.

    Investigators are questioning one of the victim’s two roommates. They are looking for the other.
