Sacramento police investigate suspicious death at Parkway-area home

Sacramento police are investigating as suspicious the death of an individual who was found deceased at a home in the Parkway area Monday afternoon.

Police spokesman Officer Justin Brown said officers went to the home in the 4000 block of Shining Star Drive about 2 p.m. after receiving a request for a welfare check and found an individual dead inside the house.

Brown said police are not releasing any information about the individual, including the gender and age, at this time so as not to jeopardize the investigation, which is in the early stages. Because the circumstances of the death were deemed suspicious, he said, homicide investigators were summoned.
