A person walking on Price Avenue last night noticed the victim's front door was open and walked up to the house. The individual looked inside and spotted the victim dead in his home. The person then called 911. The cause of death was not obvious, but there were suspicious circumstances that led Tampa Police detectives to investigate it as a possible homicide. At 4:15pm this afternoon, the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office completed the autopsy and officially ruled the case a homicide. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-873-TIPS (8477) or through its free "Text-A-Tip" service. Anonymous tips leading to an arrest may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.
