PHOENIX — The Mesa Police Department is asking the public for information to help solve a homicide after a 32-year-old man was killed on Tuesday.

Mesa police responded to reports of a man down in a Goodwill parking lot near the intersection of University Drive and Gilbert Road and found Johnathan Gliege just before 7 p.m., the Mesa Police Department said in a press release.

Gliege had injuries to his body that appeared to be the result of foul play, Mesa police said.

He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.
