La CROSSE — State and local law enforcement officers are investigating the weekend death of a La Crosse man found in his home as a homicide, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation released Tuesday.

The KBI reported that Leslie Randa, 61, was discovered in his home at 205 E. Fifth St. in La Crosse by a family member who contacted 911 at 1:39 p.m. Friday, Jan. 21. The Rush County Sheriff’s Office contacted the KBI for assistance at approximately 2:10 p.m. KBI agents and the Crime Scene Response Team responded.

An autopsy conducted Saturday indicated the death as a homicide, the KBI said. The investigation is ongoing.

Investigators continue to search for Randa’s missing black 2006 GMC Envoy with Kansas tag 463-HAE. The front grill guard is chrome. Investigators say that the vehicle was observed in Wichita after Randa was killed and may still be in the Wichita area.

Anyone who observed this SUV on Jan. 11, or after, should contact the KBI by calling 800-KSCRIME (800-572-7463), or the Rush County Sheriff’s Office, 785-222-2578.
