BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Burlington police say there is a “high likelihood” the shooting death of a 23-year-old man who was found dead in his apartment earlier this month is connected to drugs and drug distribution.

In a Tuesday news release, Burlington Police Chief Michael Schirling says any further discussion of the investigation into the shooting death of Kevin DeOliveira could compromise the investigation.

DeOliveira’s body was found in his Greene Street apartment on Jan. 3. He was last seen alive the day before.

An autopsy determined he died of a single gunshot wound to the head.

Schirling says dozens of state and federal investigators are working the case. The federal agencies include the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and The Drug Enforcement Administration.
