Lt. Jeff Dube, a police spokesman, said the cause of death is under investigation.

The homicide was the town’s first this year. Leesburg, with about 40,000 residents, is the county seat of Loudoun County, where homicides are generally few.

One homicide was reported last year in Leesburg.

In that case, police said a 20-year-old woman was found drowned in a house in October. Her boyfriend, a suspect, later hanged himself from a tree at the Goose Neck Golf Course, police said.
