GROSSE POINTE WOODS, Mich. (WJBK) -- 54-year-old Don DeWulf, a well-liked Grosse Pointe Woods man, was found dead this week inside his home.  Police are investigating his death as a murder.  No suspect is in custody.

DeWulf's brother, Mike, told us he stopped by the house on Hampton Monday morning and found Don dead on the bathroom floor.  There was blood.  He thought maybe his sibling had a heart attack, fell and hit his head.  Then investigators discovered a bullet in Don's head that may have suggested suicide, but there was no gun.  It has been ruled a homicide.

The victim's brother said earlier reports that Don was found hanging by an electrical cord in the bathroom are not true.

Don DeWulf's brother said he was the class clown.  He sold life insurance and was very trusting.  He always carried cash and it is feared someone may have targeted him because of that.

Anyone with information is asked contact police.

DeWulf's funeral will be held Thursday morning at A.H. Peters Funeral Home in Grosse Pointe Woods.
