Fredericksburg police investigating homeless camp homicide

Police in Fredericksburg are investigating the homicide of a man found dead in a homeless camp Wednesday morning.

The victim was identified only as a Hispanic male in his 40s who had been known to live in and around the Bragg Hill area for several years. Police said they were not naming him until efforts had been made to reach his next of kin.

The man was found dead in a tent in a wooded area off Roffmann Road at 10:13 a.m., police said.

A suspect has not been identified, according to police. It was not clear how or when the man died; police said only that they found “obvious” signs of trauma to his body.
