Neighbors checking on a 75-year-old man found him dead Wednesday with an eerie message written across his chest in red lipstick , law enforcement sources said.
When Joe Fisher hadn’t been seen for days, neighbors went into his apartment and found him lying on the kitchen floor with “Who’s b---- now” scribbled on his chest around 11:20 a.m., the sources and witnesses said.
Fisher, who lived in the Concourse building on Walton Ave. for more than 30 years and worked as a handyman and painter, suffered head and body trauma, police and neighbors said.
The man previously survived three heart attacks, neighbors said. “You know, he was able to survive those, but all of a sudden this happens,” one said. “It’s really a shame.”
“He was a nice man, you know, didn’t hurt anybody,” said one 46-year-old neighbor who declined to be named. “Whoever did it must have been evil.”
The elderly man had a son and daughter, according to neighbors, but they didn’t visit often.
A man who identified himself as Fisher’s son was seen leaving the building in tears but wouldn’t speak to reporters.
