Neighbors said the man they believe was found dead worked at a local liquor store.

"He was like a father to me," Eric Tavares told News12 at the scene. "We always play dominoes."

Police were in the early stages of their investigation Sunday afternoon and could not say whether the circumstances were suspicious.
