Mandan police are investigating a homicide after finding a 28-year-old Mandan man dead in his home.
Police were called to 904 Poplar Street about an unattended death around 10 p.m. last night.
There they found a man dead in his home and are investigating it as a homicide.
"Unattended deaths have to be investigated and if we don't find anything that would be an indicator that there was maybe some foul play you know those just normally get handled in that fashion. In this case, it's different," Mandan Chief of Police Dennis Bullinger said.
Police are not releasing the victims name until relatives have been notified.
Neighbors say they were surprised to see all of the police early Tuesday morning.
"Well I came home about 8-8:30 and the whole area had police cars. There was an investigation van, there was the police tape so I knew something serious had happened. I just didn't know what was going on," neighbor Paul Conley said. "Homicide is some serious stuff. I'm surprised in this neighborhood that we would have something this serious."
Bullinger says an autopsy is being done to determine the cause of death, but it has not been scheduled yet.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation is assisting in this investigation.
