ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WJBK) -

Ann Arbor Police say the death of a 25-year-old University of Michigan medical student Paul DeWolf is being investigated as a homicide.

Police responded around midday Wednesday to the student's off-campus residence on the 200 block of North Ingalls. Fox 2 has learned that DeWolf's death may be considered a homicide.

DeWolf was a 3rd-year medical student. He was also an active duty Second Lieutenant, U.S. Air Force.

Police say his body was found after he failed to show up for work at the Veteran's Affairs Hospital. A colleague was sent to check on him at his Phi Rho Sigma home and discovered his body.

Those who knew DeWolf tell Fox 2's Erica Erickson that he was funny guy who liked to go running.
