Canyon County deputies investigate suspicious death

Canyon County sheriff's deputies are investigating a suspicious death at a home in the 1900 block of South Powerline Road, just outside of the Nampa city limits.  

Deputies and EMS workers got the call at 2:15 p.m. Thursday.  They found the body of a 59 year old man in the home.  Emergency responders said the man had visible injuries and the circumstances of the death seemed suspicious. The cause of death will be determined by an autopsy on Friday.

Deputies are now looking for a vehicle missing from the home, a 1997 red Jeep Wrangler with a black top. The license plates that were originally thought to have been on the vehicle have been located, so it is unknown which plates, if any, are currently on the Jeep.

If you see this vehicle, call the Canyon County Sheriff's Office at 454-7531 or Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
