JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating after a man was found dead in an apartment at Eureka Gardens on Thursday afternoon.

Police were dispatched to the complex around 4:40 p.m. after a woman discovered that her 56-year-old boyfriend was dead, according to Sgt. Dan Janson.

The man has a history of health issues, but he was also involved in a fight at the complex within the past 24 hours.

Janson said the Medical Examiner's Office will have to do an investigation to determine the man's cause of death.

The man's body had exterior signs of trauma, but nothing definitive to indicate that is the cause of death.

The identity of the man was being withheld pending notification of his next of kin.

UPDATE, 5/24/13: The man has been identified as 56-year-old Antonio Dexter Reese, according to JSO Public Information Officer Shannon Hartley.
