A Fresno man was found dead in a field near Easton earlier this week.

Fresno County Sheriff's detectives say he was the victim of a homicide, and now they're asking for the public's help in finding his killer.

Investigators say farm workers found the body of 61-year-old Adan Flores-Rodriguez in a dirt roadway within a field near American and Cedar avenues shortly before 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

According to detectives, Flores-Rodriguez went to the Cherry Avenue Auction at Cherry and American avenues earlier that day to sell a light brown or pewter, 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe with California license plate number 4CVS831.

They say he left the auction sometime between 10 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. and was later found dead in the field.

The Tahoe still has not been located.
