Clovis police are looking into a suspicious death at 413 Sheldon Street.
Capt. Patrick Whitney said a man in his late 20s or early 30s was found dead in the residence this morning. The residence was supposed to be empty, Whitney said.
The identity of the victim was not immediately known.
The region has not had a homicide in more than a year.
The last slaying was June 30, 2013, when Max Allen of Grady was shot in a struggle with a Friona man, David Brown. A grand jury ruled justifiable homicide by self defense in that case.
Devin Saiz, 17, of Clovis was stabbed to death on March 30, 2013, during a party on Reid Street. Rico Sena was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter in that case earlier this year.
