He was found dead in his house near 1235 E. Charlton Ave. near Richmond St. just after midnight.

Neighbors told officers they called 911 when they heard a woman screaming and saw her come out of the home upset.

They told police they aren't surprised about what has happened after the activities they have witnessed at the home over the years, including what they believe to be drug activity.

"Because of the circumstances surrounding it, I'm not going to get into any details," Salt Lake Police Sgt. Robin Heiden said. "We do know this was not a random act; they were associates. They did know each other. We don't think anybody is in danger, we don't think anyone is on the loose at this point. "

Officers said the woman who came out of the home is being questioned but no arrests have been made at this time.

Herburg has a previous criminal history, including drug charges and trespassing, but officers have not confirmed if it could be related to his death.
