KELSO, Wash. (AP) -- The Cowlitz County sheriff's office says a 48-year-old man who was found dead Monday outside his sister's home near Kelso was beaten to death.

Detectives continue to investigate the death of Serhiy Anatoleivich Ishchenko as a homicide but have not made an arrest.

The Daily News of Longview reports (http://bit.ly/qpFxgt ) he was a member of an extended family from the Ukraine who live in four households in the same neighborhood. A relative told the newspaper that two men in the family fought Sunday night.

Chief Criminal Deputy Charlie Rosenzweig says it's a complex investigation and too soon to draw conclusions.
