UPDATE: Police said Crimes Against Persons is investigating this incident as a suspicious death. As of yet, the investigation is not being ruled a homicide and there are no suspects. However, police said that does not rule out the possibility.

"It is something that does require more investigation," said El Paso Police Sergeant Javier Sambrano. "It's not obvious as far as what the cause of death is, so it does require a little more investigation."

Police are asking anyone with information to call 915-566-TIPS.
