      Weslaco homicide ruled as murder

      Weslaco Police are now investigating the body found in a Weslaco apartment last Thursday as a murder.

      Weslaco PD told Action 4 News that there is enough physical evidence for the case to be investigated as a homicide for the male victim. The discovery was made off South Border Avenue and West 2nd Street around 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

      Both police and a justice of the peace were called to the scene.

      Investigators originally received a call about a bad smell coming from an apartment.

      Police found a badly decomposed body inside.

      An autopsy was ordered to determine the body's identity and the cause of death.

      Action 4 News will provide more information as it becomes available.
