The State Medical Examiner's Office says an autopsy shows an elderly Cumberland County man was asphyxiated.

Now, the Sheriff's Office is investigating its first murder of 2011.

On January 2, the son-in-law of 83-year-old Angel Delacruz found the man inside a house at 201 Rose Street. The home is close to Spring Lake.

A news conference was planned for later Tuesday to talk about the case.
