BATON ROUGE - Police identified a man they said was found murdered earlier today in a vacant home in Baton Rouge.

Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said Shawn Hartley, 31, was found dead in a home on Wenonah Street around 12:40 p.m. He said an anonymous caller phoned in the tip, saying something was happening at the vacant building.

Investigators said Hartley was beaten by a large object, but the exact cause of death was still pending until an autopsy could be completed.

McKneely asked anyone with information about the incident to call the Violent Crimes Unit at (225) 389-4869.
