WOODSBORO (Kiii News) -

Refugio County authorities are looking for clues in their first homicide in nearly eight years.

It was last Wednesday when the body of 42-year old Paul Lopez, Sr., was found at his home near Woodsboro. His 16-year old son discovered the body.

So far, no one is saying how the man was killed, but the medical examiner in Lockhart, Texas, recently ruled the death as a homicide.

"The individual was found in his yard at three o'clock in the morning by the son," said Lt. Martin DeLeon of the Refugio County Sheriff's Department. "We have no leads from that point on."

If you have any information that could help police solve this crime, please call the Refugio County Sheriff's Department at 361-526-2351.
