A man was found dead inside the laundry room of a Vista apartment complex Saturday morning, prompting sheriff’s deputies to call in homicide detectives to take over the investigation.
The call came in at about 4:30 a.m., and deputies investigated a report of a person down at the 1500 block of Melrose Drive, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Lt. Kenneth Nelson. That’s where they found a 32-year-old Hispanic man who had apparently died of trauma to his upper body.
Detectives have not released the victim’s name or a possible motive, and there was no suspect information available, Nelson said. Anyone with information can call the homicide detail at (858) 974-2321, after hours at (858) 565-5200 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
