Peoria police are launching a homicide investigation after a man's body was found in an apartment building following a fire. The man's body was found in a first-floor storage area after last night's blaze. He had burns to his body, but other trauma led investigators to suspect homicide. Peoria County coroner Johnna Ingersoll says an autopsy will be performed today. The fire is also being investigated as a possible arson.
