Garden City police have identified a local man who was found dead in his residence Thursday, and have ruled his death a suicide.

Police found the body of Zeferino Holguin, 62, 102 1/2 N. Third St., in an exterior building of his residence after police responded to his home at 5:46 p.m. Thursday for a welfare check. Concerned family members had requested the check when they were unable to locate Holguin.

Police said Holguin died of self-inflicted injuries, although they have not released a specific cause of death. No foul play is suspected, and the investigation is ongoing.
