An Oceanside man was found dead in his apartment Thursday and his houseguest was under arrest on suspicion of murder, police said.
A 911 caller reported the suspected homicide in the 3200 block of Mission Cove Way shortly before noon, police spokesman Tom Bussey said.
Patrol officers arrived to find the 41-year-old victim dead on the floor of his rental residence near Mission Avenue and Foussat Road with visible upper body trauma. His name was withheld pending family notification.
Detectives questioned a 66-year-old man who had been staying with the victim, then arrested him on suspicion of inflicting the fatal wounds, Bussey said.
The name of the suspect — described as an acquaintance of the victim’s who had been staying with him in recent days — was not immediately available.
