Murder investigation after Symmes Twp. man found dead at residence

SYMMES TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A murder investigation has begun after a 64-year-old man died as a result of homicidal violence in Symmes Township, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office announced.

Emergency crews responded to Redcloud Court near Montgomery Road around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday morning for a medical emergency.

Sheriff's deputies and paramedics from the Loveland/Symmes Fire Department found Anant Singh dead at his residence.

"You couldn't imagine a person like Anant being the target of such an event. He was a very gentle man, decent man," said family friend Harjinder Singh.  "Anant never had a bad word to say about anyone. He was always smiling. So I can't understand how this came to pass."

Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil says a murder investigation is ongoing.

There is no information that would lead to believe that anyone in the area is at an increased risk of harm, Neil said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call CrimeStoppers at (513) 352-3040.
