Denison Police have launched an investigation after a man a was found dead at the Tower Homes Thursday morning.

“We received call around 10:38 this morning of a deceased person in one of the apartment units here on Tower Lane,” Eppler said. “We did respond and have one person that is deceased at this point.”

Eppler said the department was investigating the death as a possible homicide out of precaution, but citing the ongoing investigation, said he could not yet comment on the man’s identity or provide details on the suspected cause of death.

“We still have to positively identify who it is and contact next of kin,” Eppler said.

Eppler said the department did not have any suspects or persons of interest in custody. The Denison Police lieutenant said the Tower Homes are run by the Denison Housing Authority and added that it was unusual for the department to receive calls for assistance from the complex and its residents.

“We’re talking to people in the area and gathering information,” Eppler said. “We still have a lot to do here.”

The Texas Rangers are assisting with the investigation.
