GLENDALE (WITI) -- Glendale police say one person is dead, and two people are in custody. This, as officials on Wednesday afternoon were conducting a death investigation at a home in the 6300 block of N. Port Washington Road.
A friend of the man found dead Wednesday says she was preparing herself for the kind of news she received on Wednesday -- and now, she and many others are trying to find out what happened.
Sally Stern is a close friend of the man found dead, and on Wednesday, police broke some bad news.
"They said 'we found (him), and he is dead.' It's unreal. It's unrealistic to believe it's true," Stern said.
Stern says she became suspicious when she couldn't get a hold of the man. She tried for days, and then contacted authorities.
"I called police and asked if they could do a wellness check," Stern said.
FOX6 News reported from the property back in 2008, when the man was in a fight with the city of Glendale regarding his overgrown yard. Police stood by then, as grass and plants were cut from his yard.
Stern says her good friend was charismatic and often misunderstood. She says she's now waiting for answers, and remembering his life.
"You try to keep him alive that way by thinking about how wonderful he was," Stern said.
Police say two people are in custody, and there are no other suspects at this time.
Police have not released a cause of death or the identity of the person who died.
The investigation is ongoing. The Medical Examiner's Office says they are treating this case as a homicide.
