The NYPD is investigating the eerie death of 59-year-old Milton Ortiz who was found dead in his Harlem apartment Thursday morning on East 126th Street.

Ortiz's heath aide was making an at-home visit around 9 a.m. yesterday, when she found him lifeless; tied to a chair and gagged.

Neighbors say that Ortiz has lived in his first-floor apartment for a long time and they would often see him sitting on his stair, but he was a quiet man. 

Police are working on trying to find a reason for why this happened to Ortiz, and if there is a motive and suspect involved.
