The death of a man found shot inside his Whitehall condominium on Tuesday evening was being investigated as a homicide, Whitehall police said.
Officers found the body of Rande Neff, 48, inside his condo at 428 Shell Court W. after they responded to a 911 call from someone who was asking officers to check on Neff. He was shot at least once, Sgt. John Grebb said in a news release yesterday morning.
Whitehall police continue to investigate a homicide discovered Christmas Eve at a Shell Court West apartment.
Whitehall Sgt. John Grebb said police have no viable suspects in the city’s second homicide of 2013.
Police discovered the body of Rande Neff, 48, at 9:33 p.m. Dec. 24 inside his apartment at 428 Shell Court W.
Acquaintances of Neff called and asked police to check on Neff, who had not recently been seen, Grebb said.
“(Neff) was estranged from his family,” Grebb said, and it is not known precisely when he was last seen alive.
Grebb said acquaintances asked police to check to the residence after having no contact with Neff for a lengthy period of time.
Police found no signs of forced entry.
“(Neff) died from at least one gunshot wound,” Grebb said.
A coroner’s report is pending to determine how long Grebb was dead prior to police finding the body.
