The discovery of a man’s body in a vehicle in northeast Calgary on Monday is now being treated as a homicide.
After an autopsy was completed on Tuesday the victim was identified as Duane Gordon Laybourne, 42, of Calgary.
Police are not saying how Laybourne was killed. His body was found in a car in the 100 block of 28th Avenue N.E.
Investigators believe the man’s death is related to an incident at a residence in the same area, Tuxedo Park, the evening before.
Officers had been called to a home a block away on Sunday night after reports of possible gunshots.
Police found a gun on a lawn during that investigation.
No one was in the house, but police say they found blood all over the walls.
Investigators think Laybourne suffered life-threatening injuries in an altercation and fled the residence. His body was found in a nearby vehicle the next day.
Police believe the death is drug related. There are no suspects in custody.
Investigators are still trying to identify and locate everyone who was in the home at the time of the incident, police said.
