Gatineau police say the death of a 58-year-old man is a homicide.

Police found the body of Yvon Normand in his home at 476 Pierre Lafontaine St. near Maloney West and Greber boulevards on Monday.

An autopsy was conducted earlier this week that confirmed the police’s suspicion, making this the city’s fifth homicide of 2013.

Police would not release the exact cause of death.

They continue to investigate.
