PEORIA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities in northwestern Oklahoma say the death of a 52-year-old man whose body was discovered in his backyard is being investigated as a homicide.

Ottawa County Sheriff Jeremy Floyd says the body of Miles Rentfrow of Peoria was discovered by sheriff’s deputies on Friday evening. Floyd says Rentfrow had lost a lot of blood and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A preliminary examination by the Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office indicates the possible cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest. Investigators say shrapnel from a small caliber weapon was found on Rentfrow’s body.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is conducting interviews concerning Rentfrow’s death but no arrests have been made.
