The death of a man found inside Cary laundromat has been ruled a homicide by the State Medical Examiner’s Office, according to the Cary Police Department.

Eriberto Crecenio Bosques, 31, of Cary, was found around 9 a.m. Saturday morning by a worker at the Wash Tub Laundry at 101 Reed St., according to police.

Police have not revealed how Bosques died, citing the ongoing investigation.

“While there isn’t much about the investigation we can share, based on the autopsy and what we’ve learned so far, we do not believe this was a random act,” Lt. Steve Fonke stated in a news release. “Our thoughts are with Mr. Bosques’ family and friends as we work to find out what happened to their loved one.”

Cary’s last reported murder came on Feb. 14, 2014, when Aleksander “Lenny” Wysocki was suspected to have been shot and killed by former family friend Eric Paul Engel, who committed suicide before he could be arrested. Kevin Leroy Bodden is suspected to have shot and killed his brother, Mark Gregory Bodden, about two weeks earlier.

Cary has not had multiple reported homicides in one calendar year since 2008, according to the town.

Anyone near the Wash Tub Laundry during the time of the murder is encouraged to contact the Town of Cary Police Department at 919-469-4012 or file a report anonymously with Cary Crime Stoppers at 919-460-4636.

Crime Stoppers pays up to $2,500 for the arrest or indictment of those responsible for committing certain types of crimes. Calls to Crime Stoppers are kept confidential upon the caller’s request, according to the town.
