Police investigating homicide in Clearwater

CLEARWATER — Police were investigating a homicide late Wednesday night at Eagle's Glen Condos.

Authorities said the victim is an adult male in his 40s. His name has not been released, and police did not say how he was killed.

Elizabeth Watts, the city's public safety spokeswoman, said police were called to 3151 Landmark Drive about 8:30 p.m.

Watts said the man's girlfriend had come home around that time and found his body inside the home. She called 911.

"Detectives do not believe this is a random act and the victim may have known his attacker," Watts said in a news release.

Police were still working late Wednesday night to find a suspect. They did not release any other details.
