Detectives are now calling the death of a man in Oxnard earlier this week a homicide.
The body of 59 year old David Salazar was found in the side yard of a home on the 300 block of Robert Avenue Monday morning. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
An autopsy was conducted, and his death was ruled a homicide, but officials haven’t released details of the cause of death. Investigators say they haven’t established a motive, and they are still trying to establish exactly what occurred.
It’s the 13th murder in Oxnard this year.
