Police investigate suspicious death of man found dead in home

Roseville police and firefighters responded to reports of a man down inside a home Wednesday afternoon.

ROSEVILLE, Calif. — The Roseville Police Department is investigating what they're calling the suspicious death of a man found inside a home.

On Wednesday around 12:18 p.m., the Roseville Police Department and Roseville Fire Department responded to reports of a man down inside a home on the 400 block of Loretto Drive.

Police say life saving measures were taken, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, the death is considered suspicious at this time. However, police haven't shared details as to why.

The man lived in a home with roommates, and police spokesperson Rob Baquera said all of the roommates have been cooperating with the investigation.

Police said no suspect is being sought at this time.

"I have never seen so many police cars"

Roseville, historically, has had low crime rates and this suspicious death comes just days after a man was stabbed at a water park, Roseville Golfland Sunsplash and a month after the city's first homicide of 2022.

Neighbors say they're shocked. 

One woman, who identified herself as Miss Cece, said the neighborhood is "pretty nice," but on Wednesday afternoon, she said the police surrounded the  home at the corner of Loretto Drive and Santa Clara Drive.

"I have never seen so many police cars, and they was ready. They was looking, taping stuff off, and I was like 'Wow!' I had to tell them, 'Hey! Wow, you guys are on it,'" she said.

More than six neighbors said the home has raised suspicion before with men coming in and out of it. 

“It would raise a flag that maybe some sort of activity has been going on in that house," April C. said.

With many questions left unanswered, neighbors said they plan on being more cautious, but police said the neighborhood is under no active threat.
