OPP have now classified a man's death in Thames Centre as a homicide.

51-year-old Robert St. Denis of Westminster Drive in Thames Centre was found dead Thursday morning.

A post mortem examination to determine the cause of death was conducted on Friday and on Saturday OPP said his death was a homicide.

Police are remaining tight-lipped about the ongoing investigation, and won't say if the man was found in the home or outdoors.

In a release, OPP said they wanted to "remind all citizens of the importance of their own personal safety by ensuring vehicles and homes are locked at all times and keys are out of public view. The OPP always encourages citizens to report suspicious activity to police immediately."

Meanwhile neighbours tell CTV News they were surprised by all the police activity as St. Denis and his family mainly kept to themselves.

Anyone with information on the death is encouraged to contact the OPP or Crime Stoppers.
