WASHINGTON (AP) - Police in Washington say a man whose body was found in an alley was a 66-year-old Denver resident who had been visiting the nation's capital.

 

Authorities say Gary Dederichs was suffering from head trauma when he found Tuesday in the city's Petworth area, which is a residential area miles away from tourist attractions. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

 

Lt. Robert Alder says Dederichs was killed near a rental property where he had been staying during his visit. Alder says he cannot remember the last time police had a case where a tourist was the victim of a homicide in the city.

 

Dederichs had worked as a registered nurse in the Denver area.

 

They are investigating his death as a homicide.
