"Our homicide rate is up about 26% over what it was at this time last year," Sgt. Ben Beall said. "I think we're probably around 103 to 107 murders in the unincorporated part of the county at the moment. We usually investigate about a third of the murders that the City of Houston does."
Deputies do not have information on a possible suspect. They say they hope to identify the victim using fingerprints. They do not believe he lived at the apartment complex.
