Waterloo police are trying to determine how a homeless man died. Investigators are labeling the death "suspicious."
The body of 57-year-old Charles "Mike" Sires was found Saturday night behind a home near downtown Waterloo. Officials were initially called to the scene to investigate a report of a man down, then discovered the victim was deceased.
Police learned Sires was homeless and believe he may have been killed. Investigators say the man had obvious injuries, but they don’t know how those injuries occurred.
An autopsy was performed yesterday and authorities are waiting for the results before they determine if foul play can be ruled out.
