ORIGINAL POST, DEC. 16, 11:50 A.M.: Just after 9 p.m. Thursday, Anaheim Police were called to check on a man in his 80s who lives in an apartment in the 200 block of South Western Avenue, near West Del Monte Drive.
Officers who later entered with the help of the man's family members found a murder victim.
"It's unknown if he was shot, stabbed or strangled," Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn told the Orange County Register.
With no immediate description of wounds, homicide investigators assigned to the case and the agency reaching out to the public for clues as to when and why the man was killed, it can be assumed he likely died some time ago--but you know what they say about assuming.
If you have information that can help detectives, call 714.765.1944.
