Police are investigating a suspicious death at an apartment complex in Willimantic on Wednesday morning.

Officers were called to the John Ashton residential complex at 621 Valley St. around 7:15 a.m.

Detectives from Eastern District Major Crime took over the investigation after they determined the death to be suspicious. 

"This is unusual. Always been quiet. Nothing like this ever happen around here. Good guy, always collecting cans. He had no enemies," said Juan Torres, who is a neighbor.

An autopsy will be conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine manner and cause of death as well as confirm the identity of the person.  

Police are not identifying the person until notification of his family.
