Police are investigating a murder in Dublin as a man was found dead in his Ballantrae home.

Officers responded to the 5000 block of Ennishannon Place after a 911 caller said his daughter's husband died overnight.

Around 7:30 Wednesday morning, the victim’s father-in-law, who was not at the home at the time, said his daughter called him after finding her husband dead in his bed.

The 911 call reveals the callers' daughter is an RN, but she was inebriated at the time and she just said, "he's dead in bed."

Neighbors say the victim is a local family doctor, and that the couple had was renting the home. They say the couple had lived there for the last two or three years.

Lou and Elaine Chorich live next door. They said they didn't hear anything unusual Tuesday night. The couple says they're stunned this happened in their neighborhood.

"Normally everyone gets along. We have a get together twice a month. It's a great place to be. This is totally a surprise," said Lou Chorich.

Police are not releasing the victims name until all next of kin have been notified. Police say there was no forced entry into the home. No arrests have been made.

Ohio BCI was called to the scene to investigate the death. The man was later identified as Dr. Christopher Osborn, 50.
