The Cambridge Police Department is investigating a homicide.

On Friday officers were called to check on 47-year-old Robert Caples at a Beatty Avenue residence.  Upon arrival police found the man dead of an apparent homicide.  Caples was the Director of the Thompkin’s Center Juvenile Residential Facility located on North 18th Street in Cambridge.

The Guernsey County Coroner ordered an autopsy to be conducted in Licking County to determine the cause of death.  A Muskingum County deputy found the victim’s vehicle parked in the Baker’s Motel parking lot on the East Pike in Norwich. 

Authorities were able to locate and arrest the suspect without incident.  The suspect is being held in the Guernsey County jail.  We’ll bring you more information as it becomes available.
