Police have identified a man who was found dead near a sports field at a Gresham Park. Detectives are investigating his death as a homicide.

Investigators said James Issei Arrington, 20, was found near a baseball field at Main City Park on South Main Avenue just after 9 a.m. Saturday.

 “He was probably the funniest person I knew,” Jeremy Cruz said. Cruz said their friendship started in middle school.

Arrington’s friends and family plans to hold a candlelight vigil at the park this week.

Detectives with the Major Crimes Team are investigating the case.
