According to a tweet from HPD, they received a call around 12:20 p.m. about a man who was found dead in a burned-down building at 1221 Redford Street.
Details of the man’s death were not immediately released.
This is the latest incident along Redford Street.
On October 1, a massive fire at an apartment complex on Redford Street forced residents to evacuate. The large fire burned through 12 units, investigators said. But the cause remains unknown.
Days later, on October 3, Redford Apartment managers were poised to serve out an eviction when they found a body wrapped in blankets in a cloakroom, decomposing.
Eyewitness News learned that the police department is officially calling it a suspicious death, as the body was badly decomposed with no obvious signs of how the person died.
