Livermore: Police seek public's help to identify four subjects in suspicious death investigation

24-year-old Livermore man was found in hotel room in May

Police are continuing to investigate the suspicious death of a Livermore man whose body was found in a local hotel room on Memorial Day weekend, and they released new photographs on Monday of four people they want to identify and interview in connection with the unsolved case.

The victim, identified publicly by police for the first time on Monday, was 24-year-old James Vincent Naples.

Naples was discovered dead in a room at the SenS Extended-Stay Residence on Airway Boulevard on the afternoon of May 24 by police officers who were responding to the hotel for a welfare check on a room, according to Livermore police Officer Taylor Burruss.

There were no obvious signs of criminal activity or a medical emergency, so his death was deemed suspicious, Burruss told the Weekly at the time.

More than two months later, Naples' death remains unsolved -- so too his cause of death, according to Burruss, with the Alameda County Coroner's Bureau final report still pending due to toxicology testing results.
