The body of Barreira, 46, was found by a roommate in their home just after 4 p.m. MT Sunday. Miller said Barreira was last heard from Saturday night, leaving 24 hours for police to piece together.

The men lived with other roommates in the southeast community of Southview. Barreira​'s roommates were away over the weekend, but police say they have been co-operative since their return.

Miller said the men's home was not known to police, but aren't saying what was discovered there during their investigation.
