PROGRESO – Police are now treating a man's death as a homicide.

They are trying to figure out why 67-year-old Ruben Garcia, who spent just about half of his 67 years in the city of Progreso and was well-known, was found dead Sunday with wounds on his head.

He was found along International Blvd in Progreso.

His brother, Antonio Garcia, is speaking up.

Antonio says his brother owned a home nearby and walked around town every day and people knew him well.

"I don't know how this happened to him. They loved him a lot in Progreso. People there knew him. I don't understand why they would hurt him," says Garcia.

Police believe the person responsible may not have known Ruben by name, but knew who he was.
