Man taken into custody for homicide in Englewood

The death of a man who was homeless that the Englewood Police Department initially thought was not suspicious is now being investigated as a homicide.

Englewood officers responded to 50 W. Hampden Ave. for a welfare check on Monday and discovered an adult man who was dead. It appears he died from blunt force trauma to his body, the department said.

The Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the victim.
