A 69-year-old Yuma man found shot to death in his car in Winterhaven on Monday was the victim of a homicide, county Sheriff's Office investigators have determined.
The body of Robert Crowe was discovered by a tow truck driver about 5:15 p.m. in the area of Winterhaven Drive and Araz Road. Crowe had been shot in the head.
County Coroner Investigator Gary Hayes said an autopsy was done on Crowe and it was determined he had more than one bullet wound to his head.
Hayes declined to be more specific, stating he could not release more details because of the status of the investigation.
When sheriff's deputies responded to the call, they did not find a gun with the body, the first indication the case was a homicide. However, investigators at that point were not ruling out suicide.
