What initially looked like a natural death is now being investigated as a homicide.  

John Tallant, 59, was found underneath the I-12 overpass at the 1900 block of O'Neal Lane on May 26.

The homeless man's death appeared to be of natural causes, but an autopsy proved that the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head. 

Anyone who has information on this incident is urged to contact the Violent Crimes Unit at 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
