GPD investigates murder at apartment complex

A murder at choice apartments on northeast 2nd street has police questioning the victim’s roommate.

The property manager told police one of the residents called this afternoon and told her his roommate was dead.

The victim is a 50 year old man who was found with unspecified trauma to his body.

Choice apartments houses people through Meridian Behavioral Healthcare, which serves people with mental health and substance abuse issues.

Neighbors say everyone knows each other at the complex, and that many people have heard the roommates arguing often.
“They always fought, and I even went to the landlord and told the landlord, ‘you need to separate them,’ because they don’t get along, and at nighttime, behind closed doors, you don’t know what’s going on in there,” said Resident Pam Fairley.

No arrests have been made, but police say the roommate is cooperating and is being questioned.
