Police Chief William McManus says the body was discovered Wednesday by officers who responded to a woman's call about seeing blood in her home and some items missing.
The woman told police that two men she knows had been at her place Tuesday night when she fell asleep. She awoke to find blood spatters and determined her cellphone and her laptop computer were missing.
Police are seeking the other man who had been at the apartment on Tuesday.
The name of the slain man was not immediately released. An autopsy has been ordered.
