A police report released Friday paints the grisly picture of a crime scene where a 39-year-old man was killed inside a Dunwoody apartment.

The body of Spencer Lavest Foster was discovered shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday by his sister and her friend at the Dunwoody Village Apartment Homes off Dunwoody Crossing, authorities said.

According to the report, Foster’s body was found partially inside the kitchen, lying in a pool of blood. His blood also covered the entire front wall of the apartment and spattered onto the ceiling, investigators wrote.

“Throughout the rest of the apartment was blood on the floor and walls,” the report said. “Items inside were broken and thrown about.”

A paramedic at the scene told officers he believed Foster had been shot, according to the report, though an exact cause of death won’t be released until his autopsy is complete, police said.

It’s also unclear what led to Foster’s killing or if detectives have identified any suspects in the case.

Foster’s sister told police she last saw her brother Monday, two days before finding him dead. When she arrived at the apartment, the front door was shut but not locked. She called 911 after opening the door and seeing the blood inside.

The homicide investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information about Foster's death is asked to contact Dunwoody police at 678-382-6934 or robert.barrett@dunwoodyga.gov. Those wishing to remain anonymous are encouraged to submit tips to the Dunwoody Police Department website or at www.crimereports.com.
