RUTLAND, Mass. (AP) - Authorities say a body found in a Rutland home on Saturday was that of the man who lived there.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early on Monday identified him as 59-year-old David J. Alan. Alan’s body was found by police who had been called to the East Country Road home to check on a possible missing person. Early said the death is a homicide and the investigation is continuing.

Neighbors tell the Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/1ltB5Mi) Alan lived alone and they rarely saw him.

Police said the killing doesn’t appear random. It hasn’t been disclosed who called police.

The slaying was the second in the town in recent months.

In December, police found 53-year-old Diane Lamarche-Leader dead after a fire at her. Her death was ruled a homicide and two men have been charged.
