PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) --- Homicide detectives have taken over investigating the death of a man found in a Northeast Portland home early Friday.
Right around 1 a.m., police went to the home in the 10900 block of NE Marx Street after somebody found the man's body.
The Oregon State Medical Examiner's office was called to the scene and determined the death was suspicious.
On Monday, police publicly identified the man as Kenneth Okazaki. An exact cause of the 69-year-old
The forensic homicide division and homicide detail were both called to the scene to investigate. A mobile command center was set up around 5:30 a.m., and officers spent the morning canvasing the house and asking neighbors if they or their cameras had seen anything.
"We only have one opportunity to capture the evidence," said Sgt. Burley. "That is what we're doing right now."
At this point, no one is in custody and police have not given any hint that they have a suspect. They did say they don't believe there's any danger to the public.
While neighbors told KOIN 6 they have had trouble with homeless crime, Sgt. Burley said they haven't uncovered anything so far that would lead them to think homelessness was involved in this case.
