Body Found in Toppenish Neighborhood

Posted: Updated:
TOPPENISH, Wash.--A man was found dead in a Toppenish neighborhood Saturday.
 
Police have not identified the victim but said he's a Hispanic male in his 20's or early 30's.
 
The victim was found along the 900 Block of Washington Avenue with a head injury. People living in the area told investigators they didn't notice the body during the day, but deputies said it appears it had been there over night.
 
People we spoke with said this violence is unusual and troubling.
 
NBC Right Now asked Francisco Nabarro, "When you saw all those police cars were you scared?"
 
"Me no, only my family, yeah my family," said Nabarro.
 
The Yakima County Sheriff's Office is handling the investigation.
 
An autopsy on Martinez is scheduled for Monday.
