The Volusia County Sheriff's Office is investigating the murder of a 47-year-old man whose body was found inside a home near Ormond Beach early Wednesday morning.
John Collins was found dead on the kitchen floor inside a home on Sunny Palm Drive, with obvious signs of trauma to his body, investigators said.
The body was discovered by a woman who lives at the residence. She told deputies that she and Collins had an on-again, off-again relationship and that he had been staying with her lately. A family friend was with the woman when they discovered the body.
The woman who lives at the home told deputies that she left the house Tuesday night and found Collins' body when she returned home Wednesday morning at about 7:45 a.m.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.
