Police say an autopsy has revealed that the suspicious death of a man in Virginia was the result of "homicidal violence."

Authorities have identified the victim as Harley Jacka, 29, of Virginia.

Virginia police say the department received a call around 4:30 Tuesday afternoon, from a man reporting a deceased man in his residence at 207 5th Street South.

On Wednesday, Eyewitness News spoke with a businesswoman who's had her company located off 2nd Avenue for a decade. Michele Woods, who owns North Star Mortgage, told us the atmosphere has gone downhill.

"It's scary. I don't stay out much after four o'clock anymore. People out here are extremely creepy. It gets worse year by year," she said.

Virginia police said they are working with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, St. Louis County Attorney's Office, Eveleth Police Department and the FBI to bring the person or person's responsible for this crime to justice.
