APD investigating homicide in Nob Hill area

Albuquerque police are investigating after a man was found dead just south of Nob Hill Sunday night.

Lt. Ray Del Greco said around 8 p.m. officers were called to the 200 block of Richmond SE because neighbors reported there was a man who appeared to be dead outside. When they arrived, he said, officers determined the man had suffered “some trauma to the body that indicated it was not from natural causes and a full violent crime call out was initiated.”

Homicide detectives arrived at the scene, canvassed the area and found security camera footage that appeared to show the man had been in a “confrontation” the previous evening and was injured, Del Greco said.

“We’re piecing together what that altercation was,” he said. 

He said detectives have not yet identified the man or determined if he lived near by.

The death capped a deadly two-day stretch over the weekend.

On Sunday morning, police found two dead people in what police believe were connected homicides in west Albuquerque.

Police also launched two homicide investigation Saturday. A man was found shot and later died in a southeast Albuquerque neighborhood. Homicide detectives were also called to the bosque on Saturday after a group of people walking along the path found a man’s body. Police officials said it appeared the made had been dead for awhile and there were signs he died of natural causes.
