He was found in the 8200 block of Ocean Gate Way shortly after 9 a.m. That's near North Rampart and West Lake Mead boulevards. 

The victim was discovered after not being heard from for several days. The caretaker of a family member of the victim found the man deceased and called police.

A neighbor tells 13 Action News the garage door of the home was open all weekend. We're told this was strange because it is against HOA policy. 

The neighbor rang the doorbell on Sunday but there was no response from the homeowner. The horrific discovery was made on Monday inside that home.

According to that neighbor, the homeowner had recently installed security cameras. 

The coroner's office will release the identity of the victim once relatives are notified.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
