OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City Police are looking for the person responsible for the city's latest homicide. A man was found dead inside a southeast Oklahoma city business early Sunday morning and detectives suspect foul play is involved.

Detectives are not releasing how this man died, but they have identified him as 55-year-old Timothy Farrell.

Jail records show Farrell has been in and out of county more than half a dozen times for drinking and domestic abuse. But most recently he was staying at a business located near the railroad tracks near SE 23rd and Shields; a place known for recycling pallets but will now be known for where police found Farrell's body.

"He was homeless for a period of time and the owner was allowing him to stay there," said MSgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City police department. "So he wasn't somewhere where he shouldn't be it was OK for him to be there what is unclear is who killed him and why he was killed."

Most of the businesses around there were closed when investigators with the crime scene unit were on the scene this past Sunday. But workers News 9 talked to Tuesday say they remember seeing Farrell around the yard from time to time. But they claim he kept to himself.

Because of the neighborhood and nature of the crime, workers here are keeping quiet too, but police hope anyone who knows what happen will break their silence and call them with the name of the killer.

For now police have made no arrests and have named no potential suspects. If you have any information that can help police you are urged to call the homicide tip line at (405) 297-1200. Callers can remain anonymous.
