Man found dead inside his apartment
San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies are conducting a homicide investigation after finding a man dead inside his Rancho Cucamonga home.
The unidentified man’s employer called sheriff’s deputies about 4:15 p.m. Thursday asking if they could check on the man, since he had not been to work and was not answering his phone, according to a sheriff’s news release.
When sheriff’s deputies arrived they found the man’s car in his garage. With help from the property manager they entered his apartment in the 11200 block of 5th Street where the body of the 49-year-old resident was discovered.
There was no sign of forced entry or a struggle, according to the news release, but because the cause of death was not immediately known, officials asked homicide detectives to assist with the investigation.
An autopsy will be performed to determine the man’s cause of death. Anyone with information about the incident can call 909-387-3589 or WETIP at 800-782-7463.
