Sacramento homicide victim’s identity released

The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has released the name of the man whose death on Monday resulted in an investigation by homicide detectives.

Sacramento police said earlier this week that they are investigating the suspicious death of Leo Curry, 77, who was found deceased in a home in the Parkway area Monday afternoon.

Officers went to the home in the 4000 block of Shining Star Drive after receiving a request for a welfare check and found Curry inside the house.

Because the circumstances of the death were deemed suspicious, homicide investigators were summoned. Police have not yet released how Curry died.
