A U.S. citizen has been found dead in his home in Las Magnolias in La Uruca.
Judicial agents identified the man as Robert Lee, and say he had been dead for days. His body was found in the middle of a marijuana-growing operation.
Although his death appeared to be nonviolent, investigators are waiting for the results of an autopsy to be conclusive, spokespersons said.
Lee and his wife used to operate a small food store in the area, a neighbor said.
