Officers responded to the home on the 3000 block of Collis Avenue at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday.
They saw the home had been ransacked, and then found the body of Alois Nihswohl.
Police were still trying to determine how he died and declined to say if his death was related to a burglary.
Neighbors said Nihswohl has lived alone since his wife died about five years ago.
During World War II, he was an Austrian citizen drafted into the German army at age 17 and spent time in a Russian prisoner of war camp.
David Humbert, the man's caretaker, reported finding the body after not hearing from him in couple of days.
