KALISPELL – New details are coming to light after a man was found dead in a Kalispell home on Monday evening.

Flathead County Sheriff Brian Heino tells MTN News that a neighbor called in the incident — which happened on Lenwood Lane — to 911 and when deputies arrived at the scene they found a middle-aged man dead on the floor in the home.

A person of interest was taken into custody Monday on unrelated, separate charges, and is being held in the Flathead County jail as the investigation continues.

Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying anyone who might have information related to the investigation.

“We’re still looking for a late model older Ford pick up single cab with rhino lining over the top, so if the public sees that please contact us so we can attempt to make contact,” Sheriff Heino said.

He added that the vehicle was seen leaving the scene of the death minutes before law enforcement arrived.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office at (406)758-5610. There is no danger to the public at this time.
