Police came to the home and heard a faint voice yelling for help.
Inside, police found a body on their way to find the person yelling for help. Police eventually located a 90-year-old man in one of the rooms who was visibly hurt.
He told police he heard glass break, went to investigate and was attacked by the suspect. The suspect used furniture to go after him and said he wanted to see someone die before he killed himself.

The man told police he has no idea who the intruder was.
Police haven't yet named the suspect, but say he was a 44-year-old man from Rochester Hills.
