A Canadian man who was found killed in a seaside resort town in the Dominican Republic hailed from Toronto, according to media reports.

Detras del Rumor, a Dominican news site, identified the man as 68-year-old Marcel Adam.

According to the report, Adam's body was found on Friday in an apartment in the town of Sosua, near Puerto Plata.

A photograph of his driver's licence posted on the site listed a Toronto residential address.

Authorities believe he was killed last Tuesday.

Local authorities have launched an investigation, but initial reports indicate his death was caused by gunshot or fatal blow on the head with a sharp object.

A spokesman for Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade said in an email to CBC News that staff are "aware of the death of a

Canadian citizen" in the Dominican.

"Consular officials at the Canadian Embassy in Santo Domingo are working closely with local authorities to gather additional information and are providing

consular assistance to the family," the spokesman said.

No further information was released.

Adam's wife, who is in Toronto, told the Toronto Star she was awaiting autopsy results.

This article claims an arrest is imminent and then there is nothing further. There were a number of murders of Canadians in the same area and around the same time. In one case two men were caught working together, to kill and rob.
