The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and Tyrone police are investigating the death of a man found last week in the business he owned.

Tyrone police were called to Jim’s Auto & Salvage, U.S. 54 and Conlen Street, on June 30 after an employee reported 70-year-old James Edward Vitkowski was lying on the floor with head injuries. He was taken to a local hospital and then flown to a Kansas hospital.

Vitkowski was pronounced dead early Tuesday from what appears to be blunt force trauma consistent with homicide, OSBI reports. His body has been taken to the state medical examiner for an autopsy.

Anyone with information about the homicide is asked to call the OSBI at (800) 522-8017.
