OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) - Police say they've arrested a suspect for the murder of a man found decomposing in his home.

The arrest was made Wednesday.

On June 8, officers were called to the home of 51-year-old Chidozie "Joe" Ojiaka near West 75th Street and Lowell Avenue after neighbors reported seeing a large amount of flies gather in the windows.

Investigators said Ojiaka was stabbed to death.

Ojiaka's brother spoke about his tragic loss. He said he has no idea how long Ojiaka was dead in his home before police found his body.

Sam Ojiaka lives in Olathe, KS, and says he last spoke to his younger brother back in November. He did try to get in touch with "Joe" Ojiaka several times in recent months, leaving him messages before he went on vacation to Africa.

Sam Ojiaka says he doesn't understand who would want to harm his brother and he hopes to get some answers soon.

"I hope that justice gets done in this case and that we can have a closure sometime soon," he said.

Sam Ojiaka said because he and his brother had different schedules, they didn't see each other often. "Joe" Ojiaka owned a few car lots in the metro and was often towing vehicles and going to auctions. His brother said that "Joe" Ojiaka's tow truck is missing and he believes that may hold a clue as to who killed his brother.

Police haven't named the suspect but said they most likely will on Thursday. No charges have been filed at this time.
