UPDATE: Victim In Georgetown Death Investigation Identified

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del. - Delaware State Police say they have identified the man found deceased this morning as Cornelius J. Henry, 43. Henry's body was reportedly found at the Dunbarton Apartments.

According to reports, the investigation began shortly after 3:00 AM when members of the Georgetown Police Department responded to the apartment complex after receiving a report of an injured or dead male in the vestibule of one of the apartment buildings. After officers and medical personnel located the male, he was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Henry's body was removed from the scene and turned over to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for determination of the exact cause and manner of death. Police could not give any details on the scene or whether or not there was any visible harm to Henry's body, but they say the public should not be concerned for their safety at this time.

"There is no indication that this is a random act of violence," says Corporal/Lieutenant John Day with the Delaware State Police.

At the request of the Georgetown Police Department, Delaware State Police detectives say they responded to the scene and are conducting the death investigation. This investigation is reportedly in its preliminary stages and more information will be released when available.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact the Detective Mark Ryde at 302-531-5891, or by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
