Police say man's death in Topeka considered a homicide


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka police say the death of a man whose body was found inside a home is being investigated as a homicide.

The victim, 36-year-old John Waller, of Topeka, was found dead Monday at a central Topeka house.

Police Lt. Andrew Beightel said in a news release that evidence at the scene and information from the coroner's office prompted the decision to investigate the death as a homicide. He did not elaborate on the evidence.

Police officials said officers who responded to the home noticed "several suspicious circumstances" that prompted them to call in detectives.
