GLENDIVE - Law enforcement officials are investigating the death of a 23-year-old Glendive man as a homicide.

The Glendive Police Department got a call at around 11 p.m. Friday about the man, a white male, whose body was discovered at a home in the Casitas Del Rio trailer court.

After examining the scene, police officers decided to treat the death as a homicide, said John Strandell, investigations chief for the Montana Department of Justice's Division of Criminal Investigation.

Two DCI agents are working with Glendive police and the Dawson County Sheriff's Department on the investigation, Strandell said.

"There are no suspects at this point," he said.

The body will be transported to Billings for an autopsy. Strandell hopes to release the man's name in a few days, after next-of-kin have been notified and the autopsy has determined a cause of death.
