Santa Fe police are investigating the death of a man who was found unresponsive around 4 p.m. Tuesday in the 1700 block of Cerrillos Road.

The family of 48-year-old Emmanuel Baldonado of Santa Fe told police they had last seen him Friday evening.

“Detectives initiated an investigation into the cause of death after an initial assessment of the scene appeared suspicious,” police said in a news release Tuesday evening.

Deputy Chief Ben Valdez initially declined to release any other details about the man or how he died.

After speaking with family, however, the police department issued a statement later Tuesday identifying Baldonado. The state Office of the Medical Investigator will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of Baldonado’s death, the statement said.
