Benton County sheriff's officers are investigating the death of a Benton City, Wash., man as a homicide.

The Tri-City Herald reports the body of 55-year-old Mike Edwards was found Monday in a church parking lot.

There was no immediate word on how Edwards died.

Law enforcement officers were working in the parking lot of the Assembly of God church and at Edwards' home, a recreational vehicle.

Edwards' trailer is located at Elm Grove RV Park, a little more than a mile south of the church.
