Wichita police investigate apparent homicide

WICHITA — Police are investigating the death of a 40-year-old man who was found dead this afternoon in his northeast Wichita apartment.

Capt. Jeff Easter said the body was found about 2:30 p.m. by an employee at the Remington Apartments, 7272 E. 37th St. North. The employee went to check on the man at the request of a relative, he said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

"It appears that it is a homicide at this point," Easter said. "At the very least, it's suspicious."

He said officers were interviewing residents of the three-story complex on the north side of 37th Street North between Woodlawn and Rock Road.

The victim's name and the cause of death were not released.
