Man's death under investigation as Peoria's 20th homicide of 2022

Yellow police tape stretches across a blurry crime scene. It says "Police Line Do Not Cross." The text "WCBU Police and Fire" lays on top of that photo.

Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood said a man's death in the North Valley is under investigation as a homicide.

66-year-old Kenneth Charles Bryant was found dead in an alley in the 600 block of NE Adams around 4:10 p.m. Thursday.

Harwood said he suffered multiple blunt force trauma injuries to his head and neck which were inflicted by another person.

Bryant was reportedly homeless.

The Peoria Police Department is investigating.
