A 75-year-old man from Missouri died while he was at a hotel on St. Charles Ave., in New Orleans, on Thursday evening, authorities say.

Just before 11 p.m., police responded to a call at the Avenue Plaza Hotel at 2111 St. Charles Ave. When they arrived to room 612, they discovered a man who had experienced head trauma and was unconscious.

Police then found a suspect, Martin Furtado, 29, in a restroom. He was not staying in the room or the hotel, officials say. Furtado was apprehended and charged with second-degree murder. His bond was set at $350,000.

The victim was transported to a medical facility where he was declared deceased, close to midnight. Authorities say that it is believed that the man was fatally beaten with fists not a weapon. Additionally, it was learned that he had been in town, visiting the city with his family.

The incident has been noted as being a homicide.

After the autopsy is done and the family is informed, the 75-year-old man’s identity will be released.

An investigation is continuing.
