— 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."

Anyone near the laundromat who might have information about the case is urged to contact Cary police at 919-469-4012 or file an anonymous report with Cary CrimeStoppers at 919-460-4636.

CrimeStoppers pays up to $2,500 for the arrest or indictment of those responsible for committing certain types of crimes. All calls are confidential at the caller's request.

    Cary PD has officers scared to do their jobs for fear of being run off like many in the past can attest to....too busy trying to match quotas on traffic stops and useless statistics just to get a head in the department, nevermind telling on each other...some brotherhood they have there...

    this bar near this location is always having problems such as altercations and stabbings, but they stay hidden due to the Cary PD not letting much info get out, as this article shows...

    Do the authorities know if it was random or not?
    Prayers for his loved ones, regardless.

    "Bosques' death marks the first time Cary has had more than one homicide in a calendar year. Cary had three killings in 2008."

    Nice journalism, you contradict yourself...how is this the first time Cary has had more than one homicide when in the next sentence Cary had three in '08, it seems to me that 3>1.
