VANCOUVER, Wash. – A security guard who was found dead in Vancouver, Washington, and who is now the subject of a homicide investigation, was driving a car registered in Eugene.

The car is registered to a home on Lexington Avenue in the Glenwood area, according to Oregon motor vehicle registration records. It is not clear why his car is registered in the city or what the connection is between the man and Eugene.

Police said an employee of the security company Knighthawk Protection found the unidentified man’s body just after midnight on Monday.

Authorities said he died of homicidal violence and have opened an investigation.

The company’s owner, Rusty Rice, said the man was on duty Sunday night into Monday morning and was making a safety check. He said the man was unarmed, as are most of their security guards.
