A $2,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in the murder of a 62-year-old man in Las Cruces.
Authorities said James David Vaughn was found Friday, covered with a blanket along an irrigation canal.
His death was being investigated as a homicide.
Las Cruces police detectives said they believe Vaughn was homeless. They were hoping to speak with two other transients who might have spent time with Vaughn in Las Cruces over the past couple of years. One is male and goes by the name Chaos. The other is a woman known as Cyclone.
Authorities said Vaughan previously lived in Tucson.
