Investigators believe Coleman was killed the day before.

The 911 call was made around 8:10 a.m.

Second Caller: He is laying outside slumped over.

Dispatch: Okay…

Second Caller: I turned around and left.

The initial reports detailed damage found at the home like, "...several holes in the window..." and "broken glass on the floor inside of the doorway."
