VIRGINIA BEACH -- A suspicious death in the Lake Edward neighborhood over the weekend has been ruled a homicide.

A neighborhood vigil was held Thursday for Cyle Strahl, 29, of Virginia Beach.

Strahl's body was discovered late Saturday night in the doorway of his home on Red Horse Lane, Virginia Beach police say. Neighbors say it was his live-in girlfriend who discovered his lifeless body.

Many in the community say Cyle was well liked and the type of guy who would give the shirt off his back.

'He played with the kids, he played football with the kids. He was good to everybody that I know of on this street,' said a neighbor.

As investigators search for a suspect and possible motive behind the killing, neighbors are left grappling with the loss of one of their own.

'Once we found out who it was, it was like a loss in the family.'

Police have yet to release the exact cause of death.
