Police try to solve puzzle of dead body found in home
Las Vegas Sun
Metro Police detectives were baffled by the discovery of a homicide victim in a home on the Desert Rose Golf Course near Sahara Avenue and Nellis Boulevard about 11 a.m. Monday, Metro Homicide Lt. Tom Monahan said.
Officers said the man who lives at the home whose name was not released by police, had been trying to fix a garage door that was broken and left open for a couple of hours while he was running errands. When he returned home, he found a 31-year-old man, whom he said he did not know, dead in his bathroom.
The man had been shot in the head and three bullet casings were found in the home. Detectives had not pinpointed who may have shot him or why, Monahan said. The resident who told police he lived alone, was not considered a suspect this morning.
Monahan said the resident kept firearms in the house but that detectives were still analyzing this morning whether the bullets used in the shooting came from one of his guns.
Detectives speculate that the man who was shot might have been burglarizing the house with a partner, police said. His clothing -- a heavy leather coat, gloves and small backpack -- indicated he could have been a burglar, police said.
"It's a head scratcher," Monahan said this morning. "...we don't understand it any better today than we did yesterday."
Man finds dead body in bathroom
Is that an oxymoron? Would it qualify as a body if it were not dead? Anyway, a short follow-up on the story was on the news a few days ago. Apparently the deceased was indeed burglarizing the home, with two partners. An argument resulted in the partners capping his sorry ass. Sorry, Bumper. Can we say ass here? Maybe they capped his head. Anyway the two suspects were apprehended and all three surnames sounded Hispanic. Don't know if they were here legally or not, and it doesn't matter now. Two are definitely illegal and the third..............well, it just don't matter. I would prefer a different conclusion, like one of the guys capping the other two, just in time to be shot by the returning homeowner. Hell, if he can repair a garage door he could probably re-paint a bathroom, yuh think?
The Very First Thing You Do:
Is Say: "Oh...$HITTTT! Whyyyyy didn't I just get that damn garage door fixed right away???" :cussing::arg:
THEN....CAREFULLY EXIT THE HOME and do it absolutely without touching or disturbing anything. Try to get out the door that you entered from without touching the door hardware where it would normally be touched.
Go "post haste" to the nearest phone or use your cell phone and RIGHT AWAY call the police.
If possible...do not pick up or use your home phone...just in case the killer used that very same phone.
Wait for the police outside the residence.
Don't walk around the perimeter of your home...stay in one place.
If you don't smoke...NOW would be the perfect time to start. :biggrin:
Have a cigarette....then have another one.
Since the minute you saw the strange body (obviously shot/murdered) your entire home and property is considered to be a homicide scene.
You must not contaminate that crime scene.
Start thinking about exactly what you did & where exactly you went inside your home...from the minute you went in until the time you spotted the (yuk) body.
Plan on not getting any sleep for at least a few hours. :puppy_dog
