The Corpus Christi Police are investigating the twelfth homicide in 2015 after a dead man was found in an apartment located at 1520 Arlington Drive  Friday afternoon.

The Corpus Christi Police responded to a call for a welfare concern at 4:39pm Friday afternoon after a concerned person was not able to contact a particular man. The Officers worked with the Apartment maintenance crew and made entry into an apartment where the man was believed to be located and the Officers did find a man who may be about 43 years of age. Unfortunately, the Officers found the man had obvious injuries and the man was dead. The Officers believe the death was possibly the result of a criminal action, so the Officers made sure no other person was inside the apartment, then summoned Detectives to conduct an investigation as a homicide.

Detectives have contacted nearby people to ascertain more information about this death and presently do not have a suspect description to provide to the public. Detectives believe this is the twelfth homicide in Corpus Christi in 2015 and would like help from the public to learn more about what or who may have caused the death of this man.

Anyone who knows who may be responsible, or has any additional information about this death should call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS (8477) or submit the information online at http://www.888TIPS.com. Crime Stoppers guarantees to keep the callers identity secret and if the information results in a solution to the crime, it can earn the caller up to $2,500 in cash.

Corpus Christi Police Detectives obtained a warrant for the arrest of Sean Beasely (10/26/1993) for murder related to this case. Beasely was in jail on an unrelated criminal charge at the time the warrant was obtained and the bond amount for the murder warrant was set at $500,000 dollars.
