Posted Updated

CARY, N.C. — Autopsy results suggest that a man found Thursday behind a Cary convenience store was killed from a blow to the head.

Authorities were called to the Exxon station at

1205 NE Maynard Road

by the owner of the store who reported seeing a man's body lying in the woods adjacent to his property.

Police will not identify the victim until they have notified his family. The victim is described as being a Hispanic male, about 50 years old. He is five feet four inches tall and weighs approximately 121 pounds.

The victim was wearing a multicolored vertically striped shirt, brown pants, and black shoes. Authorities said it appears that the victim had been dead for at least several days, perhaps as much as several weeks.

Police would like to speak with a man who they think might have valuable information about the case. This "person of interest" is described as a black male, 160-170 pounds, slender build, late 30s in age, medium to dark complexion with short hair and a slight overbite. He might be riding a red or black bicycle in poor condition.
