The medical examiner announced Monday that a man who was found dead on Christmas Day was the victim of homicide.

A family member found the body of 77-year-old Wayne Bowden at his Monte Vista home in the 100 block of Queen's Crescent.

At the time police said the death was suspicious because Bowden's body had visible injuries.

Now the medical examiner has confirmed his death was the result of foul play.

Police have not made any arrests in the slaying.
