Police are investigating a suspicious death after the body of a North Charleston man was found at a residence on Success Street.
After officers received a call Sunday about a deceased person, they arrived at the house about 11 a.m., according to an incident report. They were met by a man and woman pointing to the back of the house and yelling, "He's dead! He's on the floor!"
Police found 37-year-old Donald Blake on the floor on his back, the report said. He had two large cuts on the right side of his face, which were bleeding, and a "deformity" on the back of his skull. Blake's body was lying on several towels, according to the report.
After seeing the wounds, an officer called for a protective sweep of the house because of the "unnatural nature of the deceased." No one else was found within the house, the report said.
No further information was available.
