NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro police need help solving the murder of a 46-year-old man at his South Nashville job.

A supervisor found Jose Sanchez's body a few hours later.

Sanchez worked at the Xelica Door and Window Co. The business is located at 6605 Merritt St.

Sanchez was at the business at 4 a.m., preparing to open the business.

"He turned the alarm off at approximately 4:40 a.m.  When his supervisor came to work one and a half hours later he found the victim near the back loading dock shot multiple times," said David Achord, a Metro police detective.

Detectives searched the neighborhood.  Witnesses told them they heard gunshots.

"The subject was not robbed.  He was not engaging in any type of activity which might have led to him being a victim," Achord said.

Sanchez lived in the Nashville area for more than 20 years.  He worked at the company for six years.

Sanchez went to church regularly. Co-workers described him to police as a good man who was easy to get along with.

"He was merely going into work and preparing the business for the other employees to arrive," Achord said.

If anyone knows anything about the crime, they should call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME. Callers will remain anonymous.

Information that results in the arrest and prosecution of a suspect, could earn the caller up to $1,000.
