Seventy-one-year-old Allen R. Levin was found beaten to death Wednesday afternoon in his Albany Park neighborhood home on the Northwest Side.

Officers conducting a well-being check about 2 p.m. at the home in the 4800 block of North Ridgeway found Levin lying on the ground with visible signs of trauma to the head, neck and body, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Levin, who lived in the home, was dead at the scene, authorities said. An autopsy found he died of multiple injuries suffered in an assault, and ruled his death a homicide.

As of Friday afternoon, no one was in custody and police were continuing to investigate.
