The investigation into the man found dead in Harmon has been reclassified following the release of an autopsy report that ruled the death as a homicide.

Guam Police Department spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao said that 63-year old Pyung Sik Lee died as a result of blunt impact to the head and puncture wounds to the torso. He was discovered lying on the ground at the LSP Corporation property on Feb. 19 and  was later pronounced dead by attending physicians.

On Feb. 26, the victim’s bronze 2010 Hyundai Tuscan was located in the Ha’asu Dededo area. Shortly thereafter, patrol officers from the Dededo Precinct Command stopped a vehicle along Ysengsong in Dededo for stripping another stolen vehicle.

Police took into custody Frank Joseph Salas Guzman in connection with the assault and car-jacking at the Harmon compound.

Patrol officers later discovered numerous items within the vehicle that belonged to the victim. The recovery of the stolen vehicle led officers to Guzman who was arrested on charges of Aggravated Assault; Robbery; Possession and Use of a Deadly Weapon in the Commission of a Felony; Theft of a Motor Vehicle; Destruction of Evidence; Criminal Trespass; Assault and Theft of Property from a Vehicle.
