The body of a 30-year-old man was discovered early this morning inside a residence in the Bella Vista neighborhood of South Philadelphia.

The body, which appeared to have suffered blunt force trauma, was found inside a third-floor apartment at 8th and Christian Streets.

Chief Inspector Scott Small said the man was found face down and surrounded by a large amount of blood on both the walls and floor. Small said there were signs of a struggle.

Police said were first called to the apartment at 12:08 a.m. today by the victim's roommate. The roommate told police he had been out and returned home to find the victim unconscious and covered in blood.

Medics rushed to the scene where they pronounced the victim dead.
