Tampa Police investigating the murder of 51-year-old Juan Ordonez

TAMPA, Fla - Tampa Police are investigating the murder of Juan Ordonez.

Officers say Ordonez's landlord found his tenant's body Sunday morning in an apartment behind a home at 1317 Arch Street.

Authorities say the 51-year-old was the victim of a violent attack that left him with severe upper body trauma.

People in the neighborhood said Ordonez was known as "Papi" and will be missed by those who saw him every day.

Police are right now looking into possible suspects but no arrests have been made. The landlord does have surveillance cameras mounted on the Arch Street house, so detectives hope to use those to help find the killer.

A vigil is being held for Ordonez Monday night at 7:00 p.m. at the corner of Willow and Union in Tampa.
