Deputies have been at a home near the intersection of Moody and Pondella in Ft. Myers after they received a call from friends of a man asking for police to check his welfare.

Now police are swarming the area and the crime unit is taking video outside of his house. They are not saying if the death appears to be suspicious.

Friends tell us it's an 83 year old man who was in great shape, and loved to fix up boats in his spare time.

WINK knows the mans name, but is not releasing it because police say his family has not been notified.
