CENTREVILLE, Va. -- The death of a man found in a Centreville home has been ruled a homicide by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Fairfax.

 

Fairfax Police began the investigation Saturday when the man's body was found in a home along the 5600 block of Gresham Lane in Centreville.

The 21-year-old man had wounds to his upper body, police said. The exact cause of the wounds was not confirmed, but they were not gunshot wounds.

The man, whose name has not yet been released, was found by family members in the home where he lived, according to police.

They’re trying to talk to family members and friends to determine where he was and who he was with before his death.

“We're still piecing together the events of where the victim was within the last 24 hours and up to this point which led to the unfortunate tragedy,” said Sgt. Roger Enriquez, a spokesman for the Fairfax County Police Department.

Police labeled the death suspicious.

Enriquez said there was no immediate threat to the neighborhood, though police have yet to name or arrest a suspect in the death.

The Major Crimes division of the Fairfax County Police Department continues its investigation.
