HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A father from the Clear-Lake area was found beaten to death and now officials are turning their sights to the hired help that may possibly serve as a connection to the crime. The victim was identified Wednesday as 62-year-old Al Dehghani of Houston. His vehicle was also stolen.
Dehghani’s body was discovered Tuesday morning in one of his rental houses by family members who began searching for him when he failed to come home after work Monday. A missing person’s report was also filed on Dehghani.
Dehghani was doing renovations and maintenance on one of his rental properties and it is believed that he hired a day laborer to assist.
Authorities are looking for Dehghani’s stolen vehicle which is a silver 2006 Honda Accord with Texas license plates THD-306.
Family members as well as police are baffled by the crime and are urging anyone with information about the brutal death of Dehghani to come forward.
As of Tuesday night, police confirmed that they had no suspects in custody but they are following leads in the case. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
