Forensic crews are now collecting evidence inside the home after waiting seven hours for a judge to sign off on a search warrant.
"We are in the process of interviewing witnesses right now. So, I don't have what they've revealed to us but they are cooperating with us," said Col. Donna Lusczynski with HCSO.
Deputies interviewed a woman and were taking photographs of her outside the home but would not comment on if the woman was involved or played a role in the homicide.
Neighbor David Marshall told ABC Action News he knew the victim and that he lived alone.
"He was a nice guy," said Marshall.
Marshall said the neighborhood is normally quiet and he did not hear anything last night.
