VERNAL — Police say the death of a man whose body was found in his apartment over the weekend has been ruled a homicide by the Utah State Medical Examiner's Office.
Emergency medical personnel and officers were called about 6 a.m. Saturday to the Pheasant Glen Apartments, 1350 W. 100 North, according to Assistant Vernal Police Chief Keith Campbell.
"The call comes in that someone is possibly deceased and that there was a burglary," Campbell said.
Just inside the door of apartment No. 21, officers found the body of Christopher Alan Miller on the floor, the assistant chief said.
"All indications are that the victim would have known the assailant," he said.
Miller, 52, had injuries "consistent with an altercation," Campbell said, declining to go into any detail about what those injuries were.
"Because of the investigation, I don't want to go into the details of the scene," he said.
Police have not identified any suspects.
