LAKEWOOD, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a southern New Jersey man found dead in his home this week apparently was beaten to death.

Lakewood police say 45-year-old Miguel Rivera was lying face down in the hallway of his Laguna Lane home when his body was discovered around 8 p.m. Thursday.

Authorities say Rivera suffered head trauma but declined to provide further details due to the ongoing investigation.

The death has been ruled suspicious.

An autopsy was due to be performed Saturday afternoon.
