Police are investigating a man's death after his body was found inside a Durham home Monday morning.

— Authorities are treating the death of a man whose body was found inside a Durham townhouse as suspicious, the Durham Police Department said Monday afternoon.

Officers discovered the body around 8:30 a.m. while responding to a call in the 3000 block of Colony Road in the Colony Hill community.

Durham police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said investigators haven't determined a cause of death, and she could not provide any other information about the investigation, including the man's identity.

    Too bad Durham has more devils than saints. No wonder murders happen with such frequency as to spin the head.

    Durham is not a city I would love to live. This is a tragedy and I hope they will find the killer (s).

    Why where else would you find dead people, but Durham.

    I would love to never be required to enter the city of Durham, ever again. Unfortunately, the US Government says I have to. Trust me though, if it was not required, I would not.

    People will pay more attention to you if you act as an adult.

    Rarely if ever does someone die in Durham of natural causes????

    Dude, you continue to show your ignorance.

    The only people who look stupid in this thread are those who are constantly bad-mouthing a town that is no different from your own - wherever you might live.

    You don't like Durham? Stay away. Your ignorant and childish jabs are not only wrong, they show your lack of intelligence and decency.

    JohnnyManiel did not say anything about a murder. In fact his statement was "So what? This happens every day in Durham".

    It really does. Someone dies every day in Durham. His statement is 100% correct.

    Now, I am the one who mentioned murder, but even I didn't say that this particular case was one of murder. I spoke of murder in general, in the city of Durham. Knowing all of this now, maybe you should be the one to shut up, before you look more stupid.
