Cary laundromat death ruled a homicide
Posted March 31, 2014
Cary, N.C. — The death of Eriberto Crecencio Bosques, who was found dead inside a Cary laundromat Saturday morning, has been ruled a homicide, Cary police said Monday evening.
“While there isn’t much about the investigation we can share, based on the autopsy and what we’ve learned so far, we do not believe this was a random act,” Cary police Lt. Steve Fonke said. “Our thoughts are with Mr. Bosques’ family and friends as we work to find out what happened to their loved one.”
A cleaning person found Bosques, 31, dead on the floor inside Wash Tub Laundromat at 101-E Reed St.
Bosques, who was a painter, was a popular person, said Rony Velasquez, one of his neighbors.
"He's like known around by like a lot of people for like the stuff he did or just cause he's like a chill person to be around with," he said.
Bosques' death marks the first time Cary has had more than one homicide in a calendar year. Cary had three killings in 2008.
"It was just unexpected, you know," Velasquez said. "'Cause like I had told you, I had just seen him at the laundromat that day."
