Man found dead inside home
Police: Girlfriend found body inside trailer
SAN ANTONIO - Police are investigating what they believe is a murder after a man in his 60s was found dead in his home.
Investigators said the victim's girlfriend found him on the floor early Saturday morning after she walked in the trailer located in the 800 block of Corinne, off of Eisenhaur and Austin Highway.
"I spoke to the man several times. He was a real nice gentleman that owns the hardware store," said James Watson.
Watson said he was shocked to find out that his neighbor had been murdered.
"I woke up this morning to all the police activity and it's usually pretty quiet around here." said Watson. "Nothing ever happens and I was kind of surprised when they told me there was a man in there that had been killed."
Although there were signs of trauma, investigators did not elaborate on what happened which is little comfort for Watson, who told KSAT that the entire incident has scared him.
"I think it's time to move," he said. "I was planning on moving anyway. Now, I kind of feel scared to live here."
Police did not immediately release the name of the victim.
