LAS VEGAS -- Las Vegas Metro Police officers are investigating a suspicious death in the 2500 block of San Marcos Street in the northeast valley.
Police were called shortly after noon Monday when a family member came home to find a relative dead. The home is near Carey Avenue and Pecos Road.
Police say they have reason to believe the death was the result of homicide.
"The scene, as we know it at this point, makes us believe that it is suspicious," said Metro Police Lt. Ray Steiber. "What that scene is, at this point, I can't disclose, because it's too early in the investigation, and, to be quite honest, we haven't made our way completely through the residence yet. We're making sure that we document the scene as we see it and keep everything as it is."
Police have not released suspect descriptions and have not made any arrests. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
