Police have identified the 54-year-old man found dead Tuesday in an alley north of Cote St. Luc Rd. near Decarie Blvd.

However until the autopsy results are available, they will not know for sure if the man was murdered or fell victim to some other fate.

A passerby found the dead man lying on the ground around 7 a.m. A window in an apartment that overlooks the alley was open.

It seems that his serious head wounds caused his death.

Police are now asking for help from possible witnesses, from anyone who was in the area between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Info-Crime at 514-393-1133.
