The Truro Police Service says a suspicious death that occurred over the weekend has been confirmed as a homicide.
Officers responded to a call about an unresponsive male inside an apartment at 125 Arthur Street around suppertime on Sunday.
In a release Tuesday, the Truro Police Service said the medical examiner’s office has ruled the death as a homicide.
The victim was 53-year-old Troy Douglas Whidden, who resided at the apartment.
The release said the investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Truro Police Service.
This marks the second homicide in Truro since Sept. 5, when 23-year-old Prabhjot Singh Katri was killed.
So far, three men have been charged in relation to that case, with one being sought on a province-wide arrest warrant.
