SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) — Police at South Lake Tahoe have opened a homicide investigation in the December death of a man they didn’t originally believe was suspicious.

Officers initially concluded there was no criminal activity when they found 61-year-old Jorge Lemus Campos dead in his home on Dec. 16.

But the department said Wednesday an autopsy conducted by the Sacramento County Medical Examiner found he had suffered blood loss resulting from blunt force trauma.

Police say they don’t believe there is any current threat to the community. No other details have been released.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the South Lake Tahoe Police Department Detective Division at 530-542-6100 or Lake Tahoe Secret Witness at 530-541-6800.
