Ohio man found shot dead in home on Christmas Eve

WHITEHALL, Ohio (AP) — Police have found an Ohio man shot dead in his home on Christmas Eve.

Officers found the body of 48-year-old Rande Neff inside his condo in the Columbus suburb of Whitehall after responding to a 911 call from someone asking for officers to check on him.

Whitehall police Sgt. John Grebb says Neff was shot at least once and that his death is being investigated as a homicide.

Neff's brother, Douglas Neff, tells WBNS-TV that Rande was a good man, hard worker and "the life of the party."

He declined to comment further.
