A man found dead at a Far East Dallas home last year suffered “homicidal violence,” police say.
On Dec. 5, officers discovered the body of Rory Thacker, 46, during a welfare check in the 8000 block of Hunnicut Road, southeast of the intersection of Ferguson Road and Highland Road, according to Dallas police.
In a Monday news release, police said the Dallas County medical examiner’s office in February ruled that Thacker “died from homicidal violence,” adding that the department’s homicide unit has been assigned to the case.
The department had been investigating the incident as an “unexplained death,” according to the release.
Police on Monday did not provide further information about why the death was later ruled a homicide or whether authorities have identified a suspect.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Dallas Police Department by calling 214-671-4226 or emailing email@example.com. They should refer to case No. 216536-2023.
