LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified a 70-year-old man who was found shot and dead in his Las Vegas home earlier this week.
Clark County coroner's officials say Charles Thomas Deishley's body was discovered at his home on Alta Drive a little before 2 p.m. on Monday. Authorities haven't yet released his cause and manner of death.
Police say they were doing a welfare check at Deishley's home on Monday but couldn't get inside. They were able to get into the home through the back door and found his body.
Detectives say Deishley suffered health problems and may have been burglarized.
