The man found dead and tied up in his Manhattan home Monday was a long-time volunteer who worked with underprivileged kids.

The nonprofit All Stars Project said Charles Romo, 48, was a volunteer theater manager.

He was found dead Monday morning inside his Hamilton Heights apartment.

Police say a cleaning woman found him and called 911.

They say Romo's hands had been tied behind his back and there was a bag taped over his head.

So far, no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
