Police are investigating the “suspicious” death of a man whose body was found in the garage of a Salinas home on Monday. Officers responding to a report of an interrupted burglary in the 400 block of Church Street found the body of 30-year-old James Martin.
Before officers arrived, the homeowner who placed the call told police that the suspect was lying on his garage floor bleeding. It was later
determined, however, that Martin had been deceased for several hours. Although Martin lived in the area, police have not yet determined
why he was in his neighbor’s garage. An autopsy is scheduled for today to determine the cause of Martin’s death.
