Body found outside San Juan apartment complex

Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found outside a San Juan apartment complex.

It all happened at the Condesa Apartments off South I Road in San Juan around 7:50 a.m. Monday morning.

The body of 36-year-old Rogelio Pardo, Jr. was found next to a dumpster at the apartment complex.

An autopsy has been ordered but investigators told Action 4 News believe that Pardo was beaten to death.

Witnesses told police that Pardo was at a party at the apartment complex but got in a fight there.

About four or five men were seen dragging Pardo to the dumpster and leaving him there around 4 a.m. Monday.

No phone calls to police were made until hours later.

Investigators believe the incident may be gang-related.
