Death of a suburban man is labeled as suspicious

Sylvania police are treating as suspicious the death of a man whose body was found in his residence yesterday in the Hunt Club Apartments, 5600 Alexis Rd.

John E. Zuchowski, 64, was pronounced dead at about 4 p.m. by Sylvania Township firefighters.

A friend of Mr. Zuchowski contacted police after she had tried all day to reach him by telephone, Detective Mike Yunker said. The dead man's medical history was unknown, and the disorderliness of the apartment could have been caused by a struggle, the detective added. Authorities found the body on the kitchen floor.

An autopsy has been scheduled for today, Lucas County Coroner James Patrick said.
