Joseph Fox, 56, Bayou Body Count No. 162
A death initially thought to have been from natural causes is not being investigated as a possible homicide, Houston police say.
Joseph Fox, 56, was found dead in his bed by his roommate in an apartment in the 1000 block of Henry 5:20 p.m. on Tuesday, HPD says. The location is north of downtown.
"Fox, who had a history of medical problems, was originally believed to have died from natural causes," HPD says. "Harris County forensic investigators arrived and found a large amount of bruising and contusions on Fox's body."
An autopsy will be performed by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
