Man found shot to death in own basement


Philadelphia police were called to the 1700 block of Bleigh Avenue shortly after midnight.

A man was found dead in his basement after being shot twice in the back of the head.

Officials say the man had a pillow over his face.

Authorities say the man was at a party with his family when he got a phone call and left early.

The wife then came home to find her husband's body in the basement.

Police were searching for a BMW wagon that was stolen from the home, but the vehicle was later located, burnt, on Cheltenham Avenue.

The search for the shooter continues.
