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.

Mesa police have not been able to find any witnesses or locate footage of the incident after looking at security cameras in the area and speaking to several people.

Anyone who was in the area in the early evening hours on Tuesday or may have information on the homicide is asked to contact the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-2211 or Silent Witness at 480-948-6377 to remain anonymous.
