DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP/Daytona Beach (Fla.) News-Journal) — Sheriff's officials in Florida say a 68-year-old man found dead at a motel that houses registered sex offenders is being investigated as a homicide.

A state probation and parole officer found the body of Marc W. Pinder on Friday morning when he stopped by the Speedway Motel for a probation check.

Sex offenders and predators live at the motel because they often have a difficult time finding a place to legally live, Pinder was convicted in 2012 on charges involving sex with a minor.

He was among 16 sexual predators and 16 registered sex offenders living at the Daytona Beach motel.
