The body of a man in his twenties was discovered Wednesday afternoon inside a home in Chicoutimi.

The Sureté du Quebec is investigating the death as a murder, since the person's body shows signs that he was attacked before his death.

Police are not yet releasing the name of the deceased, saying they will need a coroner to properly identify the victim found in the Johanna St. home.

On Thursday police remained at the crime scene and were hoping to speak to witnesses and neighbours.
