ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Deputies said they're investigating a homicide after a man was found dead near his car in an Orange County apartment complex Sunday morning.

The body was found around 6:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the Forest Hills apartment complex off of Forest City Road.

According to investigators, the body is that of 35-year-old Julio Velez. Velez was found near his gray Chevrolet Impala.

Velez was killed sometime between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m., and he is not a resident of the apartment complex, sheriff's office officials said.

"It's scary to live in a place that criminality is high," said resident Madeleine Lallave. "Around here is a place that's not secure. It's happened in other complexes but not really in this one."

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477).
